Mark Dion | Tool Bag of Dirty Tricks


Two Mark Dion editions published by John Goodwin's Shark Editions in 1991, as he was relocating from New York to Toronto:

C.I.A. Tool Bag of Dirty Tricks
Shark Editions/American Fine Arts, Co., New York City, 1991
Nine tools entirely covered with liquid rubber, with enamel inscriptions, housed in a canvas bag with a Hawaiian shirt.
Edition of 10, plus 3 artists proofs. Signed, numbered and dated.

F.B.I. Tool Bag of Dirty Tricks
Shark Editions/American Fine Arts, Co., New York City, 1991
Nine tools entirely covered with liquid rubber, with enamel inscriptions, housed in a canvas bag with a plunger.
Edition of 10, plus 3 artists proofs. Signed, numbered and dated.


The works share the visual style of Ben Vautier, and could serve as a companion to George Maciunas' Burglary FluxKit.
