These five Winning Words editions are based on Lijn’s Oracular Keys, a set of cards created in 1964 for the first staging of her Power Game performance, at the Royal College of Art. In each edition the winning words from one of the five public performances are presented in their original colours, while the losing words from each are greyed off. Following on from the performances, the viewer is encouraged to assess the power and relative values of various words, each with their connotations and insinuations.

The prints are available individually or as a set of 5.
