In 1970, Lijn created a deck of word cards, calling them Keys and inventing three games to play with them: a game of power, a game of poetry and a game of divination. Each card had one word to a side, ‘the words themselves having come to mind as I wrote them on the cards’. Poem Game is part of the Keys Trio, with Power Game and Oracular Keys.

'Conjunction of Opposites: Woman of War & Lady of the Wild Things' will be installed in a church in Amiens for a period of 2-3 months.
Il Museo della Canapa, Sant’Anatolia di Narco, Italy, has commissioned a permanent installation titled 'Spinning Dolls'.
Spinning Dolls consists of five conical forms, of various sizes, made of layers of cloth that much like women’s skirts will spin, rising and falling in thrall to gravity and centrifugal force. The work is called Spinning Dolls because these forms are a many layered metaphor of the feminine archetype. Conical, skirt-like, dancing dizzily, they evoke the multiple meanings of creation, from the making of cloth through spinning and weaving to the Moirae, or Fates, the Greek Goddesses who spin out human destiny to the cosmic spinning of planets and particles.
