  1. A teaser of the Body Psalms Project, by American artist Tim Holmes by Tim Ljunggren who participated in one of the performances. This 5-minute film gives a taste of the work Tim Holmes is doing to re-evaluate the body in a capitalist world, where the flesh is reduced to a commodity. Hermitage curator Sergie Androsov says, “There are many artists who are famous but in my opinion they are not the best. It's better to find other artists, masters like Tim Holmes, who are perhaps not so well known but whose work is interesting and groundbreaking.“

  2. Body Psalms, an exploration of poetry as sculpture, takes the ancient poetry of the Psalms into new forms involving real people's bodies, unfolding passages of the Psalms painted on skin. "Restoreth" is a 3-minute meditation on how flesh and spirit long for one another. The flesh answers the spirit’s longing to honor a sumptuous creator. My hope is to stimulate cultural dialog on the sacredness of the body.

    The film is not for commercial release and will only be used for educational purposes.

  4. A 3-minute meditation on how flesh and spirit long for one another. The flesh answers the spirit’s longing to honor a sumptuous creator. We all long for the flesh, but is it out of depravity or is it a thirst to unite with the Divine? While we search do we not feel we live in a terribly dry land?
    Text: “My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, in a dry and thirsty land.” (Psalm 63:1)

  5. The human appears out of the mist, skin after skin, young and old in all their beauty. A brush appears held in a hand that writes upon the skin an invitation to enter the temple of the body.

    The Body Psalms Project is a film-based celebration designed by artist Tim Holmes to engage individuals and communities in an effort to wrest the body from capitalist exploitation and re-infuse it with the sense of our original sacred creation.

I am first American artist ever honored with a solo exhibition in the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, where some of my sculptures remain on permanent exhibition. I am a sculptor but have moved into film as a result of exhibiting sculptures.

The "Body Psalms Project" includes a series of short films that challenge a re-evaluation of the flesh in a globalized world increasingly ruled by capitalist values. Here are also other videos about my art and life.
