An Australian artist has declared that she will smoke the ashes of Kurt Cobain in a spliff, at an exhibition in Germany next month.

The ashes were stolen from Cobain's widow Courtney Love's possession last May, but Natascha Stellmach will not reveal how she came by them - only saying "That's confidential and kind of magic. They came to me. And I am setting him free."

Many fans are sceptical of her claims, but either way, she'll be smoking a spliff in front of an audience as the climax of the death-related 'Set Me Free' exhibition in Berlin on October 11th.
