Artist Claims She'll Smoke Kurt Cobain's Ashes

October 7th 2008 06:37
Well there are conflicting reports if she really has Cobain's ashes but who'd want to smoke ashes anyway?

German artist Natascha Stellmach is reportedly claiming to be in possession of Kurt Cobain’s ashes and is threatening to smoke them as part of a morbid art exhibition.

The late Nirvana frontman’s cremated remains were reportedy stolen in May from his rocker widow Courtney Love along with thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.

Courtney claimed to be “suicidal” over the loss, saying at the time:

“I can’t believe anyone would take Kurt’s ashes from me. They were all I had left of my husband. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again.”

Stellmach says she has ‘acquired’ the ashes and has released a statement announcing her find and also detailed her plans to smoke the ashes as part of the forthcoming Set Me Free exhibition at the city’s Wagner and Partner gallery on 11 October.

But she won’t say how she came to be in possession of the remains telling Artworld magazine:

“That’s confidential and kind of magic. They came to me. And I am setting him free.”

I’m just curious, since they were stolen in the first place shouldn’t she have to turn them over now that she has announced she has them??

Anyways, Courtney Love has denied reports that German artist Natascha Stellmach has ashes of her late husband and is now insisting the ashes were never stolen in the first place. Her representative Alan Nierob retracted her previous comments, saying Cobain’s remains “were never taken” and the story of the burglary had been “erroneously reported”.

Oh the drama!

I bet Courtney Love will storm that exhibit.

Further proof that truth is stranger than fiction.
Mind you, Kieth Richards snorted his father's ashes.
