Story highlights

The online exhibition will take place at Gallery Platform Los Angeles from May 28 to June 3 and Maccarone Los Angeles from May 28 to Aug. 31. 

Canadian singer Claire Elise Boucher, professionally known as Grimes, is putting up her soul for sale in her first online fine-art exhibition 'Selling out'.

The singer has planned to sell her soul legally as the purchaser will acquire a percentage of her soul. 

''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.

''The deeper we got with it, the more philosophically interesting it became,'' she says. ''Also, I really wanted to collaborate with my lawyer on art. The idea of fantastical art in the form of legal documents just seems very intriguing to me.''

Claire soul is one of the costliest pieces of the digital event, other works include drawings, prints, photographs and the artwork made by the singer. 

"I made art 10, 12 years before I ever touched a keyboard. I see myself as a visual artist first and foremost, and I've always felt strange that people know me for music'', she added.
