Jeremy Deller is "an artist of the real". One of his recent projects was to take a car destroyed in a truck bomb attack in Baghdad that killed 38 people. It's pretty heavy stuff. The tortured, charred chassis brings home what must happen to the bodies of those maimed and murdered by such attacks. It is about as close as you'd ever want to get.
Look up the work, called "it is what it is", on his website and you will also see pictures he has taken of people's reactions to it.
