Kurt Cobain's Ashes To Be Smoked

Post by Sykesy on Sun Oct 05, 2008 4:44 pm

Australian artist Natascha Stellmach is claiming that she will smoke the ashes of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in a spliff as part of an art exhibition.

Kurt Cobain's ashes were stolen from Courtney Love in May. In a statement Stellmach claimed she had "acquired" the ashes, and would smoke them as part of the Set Me Free exhibition at Berlin's Wagner + Partner gallery.


The smoking of the ashes will take place at what is being billed as the "final act" of the exhibition, which climaxes on October 11.

Stellmach is claiming that the act will symobillically "set free" Cobain from the media circus.

The smoking will be one of various acts undertaken by artists as part of the exhibition involving the dead.

Danish artist Marco Evarissti plans to feed death row inmate Gene Hathorn to goldfish as part of the show.

The claim of ashes ownership has aroused suspicion among fans, who have posted messages online voicing scepticism that the remains are in fact those of the late singer/guitarist.

Asked how she came to have Cobain's ashes, let alone smoke them, Stellmach told the magazine Artworld: "That's confidential and kind of magic. They came to me. And I am setting him free."

Yea, I heard about this earlier. It really pisses me off that somehow "magicly" this lady got the ashes. I just find it not right because kurt did'nt even know this lady, and now she's gonna be smoking him. It's just really, really unfair and messed up...

As much as I don't like his music, that is horrible. People cannot allow this sort of crazy shit to happen.

This is freaking hysterical. Look at it this way, it's most likely not Cobain's ashes and even if they are Cobain's ashes, there's no way Courtney Love would allow this to happen.

I meant it was hysterical because if you look at it this way Classic, it's never going to happen. It's obviously either a headline made to get attention for this "artist" or the "artist" will get her ass handed to her legally by Courtney Love and Cobain's legal team. That's what's so funny about it. Then again you don't share my sense of humour.

Not the first time it has happened.

The Outlawz smoked the Ashs of Tupac Shakur after he passed away as a final show of respect.
