Sharon Lockhart Milena, Milena. A work in progress
Artist Sharon Lockhart first met Milena in 2009. Their ongoing relationship over the following six years gave rise to a trilogy of exhibitions titled Milena, Milena. In the exhibitions, as in this volume, newer works were framed by earlier biographical ones, creating a dialogue between past and present. The book is not conceived as an archive of those exhibitions but rather as its own articulation of the same work, which is still in progress. Milena, Milena thus offers both an unfolding of a body of work and an evolving exploration of childhood.
Sharon Lockhart was born in 1964 in Norwood, Massachusetts. For the past two decades, she has portrayed individuals and their communities, showing aspects of their everyday lives in moving and still photography. Lockhart draws inspiration from the filmic and, in turn, her work has had a great impact on the development of film as a means of expression in the visual arts.
The publication is published on the occasion of the exhibition Milena, Milena initiated by curator Adam Budak at Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland, Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden and Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland. With contributions by George Baker, Fanni Fetzer, Lars Bang Larsen and Camilla Larsson.
