'No Boundaries' is now in Edinburgh

17th October 2018

Since launching at Kings Cross Station the National Rail ‘No Boundaries’ exhibition has travelled 838 miles and is now stationed at Edinburgh Waverly until 12th November.

 

The 20-piece exhibition is made of artwork created by artists with a range of abilities, disabilities, age and artistic experience. The artists involved visited destinations across Britain using a Railcard, which saves customers a third off rail travel, to create artwork inspired by their experiences.

 

One of the artists is Mikko Karhu, created the piece ‘Ride’ after travelling from London to Westbury after wanting to visit the Westbury White Horse. Mikko was born deaf into a hearing family and also suffered a brain haemorrhage later in life, which has left him with memory problems. Despite these obstacles he completed his education without any special assistance. Mikko specialises in photography and believes that to travel without boundaries will make journeys more interactive and enjoyable for all.
