A display of artful imagery and forward thinking musicality, the Grimes Genesis video is sublimely surreal.
Indie artist Claire Boucher has gained notoriety for her brand of DIY music and avant-garde allure. This self-directed short is meant to be the artist’s interpretation on Russia’s social hardships.
This piece is a show of new aestheticism paired with Grimes’ signature progressive sound. Genesis toys with imagery of duality, as seen in her innocent attire mixed with a look contrasted by a silver armour and pink dreads. Grimes’s ability to capitalize avant-garde surrealism is seen in the inclusion of religious imagery, references to Japanese culture and a gang of eclectically outfitted company. Her experimental approach pushes boundaries of conventional music videos with its politically charged motifs and exceptional visions.
