Liliane Lijn

POEM GAME at Art14

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.
