Body Psalms 

a project to re-evaluate the body in a capitalist world

Body Psalms is a celebration of the sanctity of the body through performance rituals and video sculptures involving dancers and diverse ordinary people unfolding passages of mystical texts painted on their skin to create moving sculptural poetry. 

In a capitalist culture increasingly governed by the ethics of pornography, where nothing is too sacred to be exploited by amoral commercial forces, the body becomes the preferred currency.  Is this what we are meant for?
