New Dublin exhibit ‘Beyond Borders’ merges art with architecture and interior design

There are two central questions you ask yourself when you’re shopping for art for your home – does it speak to me, but also, will it work in the space I need it for. While your artwork needn’t match your furnishings, it should flow with your design and enhance the space. Otherwise, it’ll just be a piece you shuffle around your home, endlessly in search of a forever home.

Art curator Marina Donoghue noticed a trend of architects and interior designers coming to her to buy pieces for specific projects and rooms, in the hopes of creating an atmosphere and architectural centre point for their designs.

In response, she’s opened Beyond Borders, an art exhibit in Gallery Zozimus on Francis Street that focuses on creations that complement the design fabric of a room. “Artwork in public spaces is uplifting, but there is also endless pleasure in coming home at the end of a working day to the colour and energy of original artwork,” Marina says.


Irish artist Isobel Egan

As well as breaking down barriers between the world of fine art and that of interior design, the exhibit crosses geographical borders too. Born in Russia, Marina has selected number of artists for the exhibit that she came across in her years in the art world, including Irish artists Emmet Kame and Isobel Egan, both of whom merge creative thinking with the architectural form to create beautiful pieces in wood and ceramics.


Emmet Egan’s “Eclipse”

They’re joined by internationally renowned artist Graeme Todd who is based in Edinburgh, and famed Russian artists and sculptors Tatiana Badanina and Vladamir Nasedkin, as well Marina’s ones to watch, such as Latvian artist Vlad Lakshe and Anna Andronova of Russia.

You can experience the entire exhibit in Gallery Zozimus until November 17.
