This week, we’ll look Still from Portrait, number 1 man (day clean ta sun down) by Sheldon Scott. Sheldon Scott uses his own body to create a portrait of his ancestors, enslaved people from the Gullah/Geechee region of the Southeastern U.S. The 12 hour and 20 minute film documents an endurance performance by the artist, in which he processes rice grains individually with his hands. During this session of Art and Zen we will contemplate the still and the moving images from this piece and sit with our own understanding of reverence to our ancestors and the land.
