Cobain's Stolen Ashes To Be Smoked

Some of you may remember this post from last June about Kurt Cobain's ashes being stolen from Courtney Love; well, it seems that some German artist has acquired said ashes and has made some plans:

The artist is keeping mum about how exactly she came to be in possession of the remains. She tells Artworld magazine, "That's confidential and kind of magic. They came to me. And I am setting him free."

By 'setting him free', we presume she means from his previous resting place; his ashes were kept by Courtney in a pink bag shaped like a teddy bear.

In a statement announcing her find, Berlin-based Stellmach has detailed her plans to smoke the ashes as part of the forthcoming Set Me Free exhibition at the city's Wagner + Partner gallery on October 11th.

As I said in my last post on the subject, I would totally snort Cobain's ashes just for the unique experience of it. And for the record, I assume that this German artist is just some pretentious, European bitch trying to boost her career by capitalizing on Cobain's legacy; kind of like Courtney Love actually, except that she's American.
