IMG_0901 man in a boxWhat the heck’s going on this photo (taken by Jeanne Prejean)? Does it show Tim Rogers the morning after another raucous Friday-afternoon party at the D offices? Nope. It’s actually an art piece by Dallasite-turned-Prague-resident Kit Reisch, titled “Dead Me.” The thought-provoking work was on display during a reception for nearly 500 arty types last night at the Dallas Contemporary, where it’s part of a new exhibition called “Here. There. & Beyond.” that opens Saturday and runs through Oct. 31. One of three pieces in the exhibit by Reisch featuring random body parts in packing crates, “Dead Me” (and the two others) reflect the artist’s sense of loneliness, detachment and hibernation in the Czech Republic, Kit said. Hope he’s feeling better soon.
