‘Ash to Art’ auction uses Mackintosh library ashes

The Mackintosh Library Appeal has launched a unique body of work in order to raise funds. 25 Internationally renowned artists included Sir Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, The Chapman Brothers and Sir Peter Blake, were sent a unique piece of debris from the tragic fire. They were told where the ashes were taken from within the fateful library, and asked to create a unique piece of work to be auctioned for the charity.

The unique and diverse range of works created can be seen at Christie’s in London’s King Street from Mar, 3-7 and will be auctioned on Mar, 8.
