Grimes: ‘Selling Out’ spans the last 10 years of her practice and includes: original drawings as well as digital prints, photographs and video.

Selling Out is an online exhibition featuring the artwork of Grimes. Presented by Maccarone, Los Angeles, this is Grimes’ debut with the gallery. The retrospective-like presentation spans the last 10 years of her practice and includes: original drawings as well as digital prints, photographs and video.

Grimes is a project rooted in DIY production — an interdisciplinary endeavor derived from the self-taught artistry of its author, c Boucher. Boucher’s creation is titled Grimes, a persona and the imagined realm that she inhabits, spanning art, music, fashion, technology and film. The origin of Grimes recalls a sculptor’s process: actualizing a cerebral concept into physical reality, imagining raw material into being. Grimes takes form as a simulation combining gamer fantasy, anime and manga, science fiction, apocalyptic omens, and anachronistic fashion, among other genres.

Selling Out explores the notion of identity potential in the digital age: the ability to create, augment, and manifest ourselves outside of our biological limits. Boucher does so with WarNymph, a digital avatar executed in collaboration with her brother and artistic partner, Mac Boucher.

In one of the exhibits Selling Out Grimes offers up part of her sould for purchase.

Selling Out? is executed as a contract in which Grimes sells a fraction of her soul, formalizing the idea that every time an artist sells a piece of their art, part of the soul is sold with it. The purchaser will enter into a contractual agreement that outlines the terms of ownership and ultimately the connection to the joy of artistic expression.”

THE HAPTIC EYE | 1 | The Eyes of the Skin

The Haptic Eye is a sequence of three-month-long shows that seek to return to those missed sensations, but – as paradoxically as it might seem – online. Appropriately, this marks ArtCircle’s own launch of an online model to supplement its established – but previously physical – presentation of pop-up exhibitions with high quality curatorial content and works available.
