Stunning Masks Built from Board Game Pieces

Inspired by tribal artworks and primitive cultures, Swiss photographer Marie Rime created a series of stunning masks using commonplace board game pieces. The sculptural works are a colorful armor and hint at the strategies used in conflict between warring tribes. “The notion of game is being questioned,” the artist writes on her website. “I tried to express my fascination with the relationship between the players. I asked myself what the participants are looking for and whether they are trying to disturb, seduce or intimidate opponents.” See how chess pieces, checkers, Backgammon discs, pick-up sticks, playing cards, and other game elements are used in Rime’s works — which we first learned about on Fubiz — in our gallery.
