Vintage board game cards, metal brads and painted wood on canvas

47 x 75cm


A set of original, vintage Polish board game cards arranged on canvas with a three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a light grey wooden frame.

Sourced from Poland, these vintage cards were once part of a mid-century board game and are now presented in alphabetically ordered rows according to the hotel name and then raised from the background. Pristine metallic brads have been added to give a hint of colour and contrast to the worn nature of the surrounding material.

Evoking a sense of nostalgia, the individual history of these items is evident in the discoloration, marks and general wear of the paper.
