augh, it's a shame I will miss that exhibition,
but I'm going to be watching television that night, and then having a w@nk.

well obviously you won't get to see that *particular* one,
but surely my DVD performance on "Ginger Guys Get Off" will be sufficient for your needs?
what isnt an art exhibition these days, id say and underachieving 17 year old would do that after a 'batlawine'

While at the same time entering Stellmach into it. Didn't Kieth Richards say he'd smoked his da's ashes in a spliff or something. This is just sounds pish, it wouldn't even be interesting to watch.
Let's see what an arty-farty beatnik she is when his ashes give her a heroin overdose.
If I was Kurt Cobain, I would turn in my urn.
See to be fair but like...
you can't smoke ashes..
Reason being, they've already been, literally, burnt to a cinder, and you aint gonna get no smoke out of them.
Put them in a spliff and let them fall out, unchanged, at the other end, as the paper holding them burns, by all means.
Doesn't sound as post-modern though, sure it doesn't?
I hope his ghost appears and shoots the bitch.
That said. I think it's a challenging piece of work that will force us to redefine how we approach the media (certainly the tabloid media) and how we interact with the images it offers us. The drug symbolism is surely a little cliched since Cobain's druggy lifestyle and various debates about whether he did drugs or the drugs did him still rage on Nirvana forums across the interweb. The really interesting aspect of this is all is the artist's inherent femininity has great potential to really make the subject come to life since it was something he greatly missed in his own personality (no pun intended); he often said that he wished he was gay and had been born a girl. This is a brave piece by a new talent on the scene. She's really going to shake up some of those stuff-shirts and make them rue the day they ever sold out.
