by Sabine Eckmann
American artist Sharon Lockhart is well known for her formally strict and conceptually precise films and photographs. Lunch Break, is the product of more than a year spent at the Bath Iron Works shipyard in Bath, Maine, observing and engaging with shipbuilders during breaks from their daily routines. The resultant two film installations and three series of photographs present images that are devoid of sentiment yet deeply humane, intimate in their focus on everyday situations while reflective of broader global conditions through their historically grounded approach.
