Each of these editioned objects is part of an ever-expanding line of art products called Voyage Corps Gifts. These products operate as experiments, sketches, and mockups for future works in print, sculpture, and installation. The product line works as a materials lab, proving ground, test market and fundraising division to both offer affordable art as well as engage with the public to generate reflection on experiments using newly-discovered different materials, subject matter, packaging, and presentation.
Mark Rice: King Tackle Game Set
King Tackle is an appropriated version of the Swedish game of Kubb. Each unique game set includes: 1 king, 6 batons, and 10 kubbs (divided into two sets of 5). All the pieces and a set of playing directions fit into a handy screen-printed canvas tote bag. Game sets are silkscreen-printed on wood salvaged from the North Philadelphia area and have a clear varnish layer to discourage chipping and cracking during play. Game on!
Contributed by Philadelphia artist Mark Rice for The Fabric Workshop and Museum Shop’s 2020 Philly Artist Trunk Show. Half of all sales on contributed works goes to the artist; thank you for supporting local makers!
