Michael Rakowitz
is a superb artist who just doesn't seem to be able to work without diving into the monumental issues which assault our smug comfort every day. We adore him for it.

Bloggy has a great image, a link to older work, and a very concise description of Rakowitz's current majestically tragic (and continuing) project, partly installed at Lombard-Freid until February 17.
