Talisman for the mind, is an exhibition of sculpture by Karin Strachan that explores the relationship between art making and sanity. The works are informed by words, ideas and language from Bachelard, Blanchot and Frame threaded with personal ruminations about the space of one’s mind in the art world.

The exhibition is complemented by poetry readings at the opening by Ron Ridell and Saray Torres and a new poem by Tessa Priest, Sky Fragments written in situ in Karin's studio during the development of the pieces.
