"I didn't want anyone to buy it, so I said we should just make it $10 million (75 crores) and then it probably won't sell, " she told to an agency.
She continued, "The idea of fantastical art in the form of legal documents just seems very intriguing to me". As she became more philosophically interested in the concept, she opted instead to offer the metaphysical entity to the highest bidder.
The exhibition is presented by the Gallery Platform Los Angeles and Maccarone Los Angeles, and it features various "rarities" from her career, including album art, a poem about artificial intelligence and some of Grimes paintings.
According to BNN Bloomberg, the Vancouver born singer is debuting in her first fine art shows this summer.
Bloomberg claims that items on display include "prints, drawings, photographs, and other work" which Grimes described in an interview with the news outlet as "edgy-looking, anime-horror". As for how much the celebrity's soul goes for, the artist first set the price at a staggering $ 10 million. A piece also called Selling Out which, the press materials claim, comes with a claim to her very soul.
Grimes initially valued the percentage of her soul up for auction for United States dollars $10 million, but has since lowered the asking price to next best offer.
Grimes, who is mostly known for her musical endeavors, says that she hopes people will look at this exhibit not as a departure from her music, but as an extension. All works come unsigned, but you'll get a neat little certificate of authenticity to prove that you really are the legal owner of Grimes' soul.
Grimes will debut her fantastic art exhibitions on Gallery Platform Los Angeles from May 28 by means of June 3 as effectively as Maccarone Los Angeles by means of May 28 by means of August 31.
"I see myself as a visual artist first and foremost", Grimes explained about the project.
