OPENING 7 november 2014 – 5pm
Kuraator: Claire McArdle

What do they say about us on the other side of the world?
And what do you know about them?
This exhibition unites the northern and southern hemispheres through the work of jewellery and object artists from Australia & Estonia. In each country statements were collected from ordinary members of the public about their knowledge and opinion of the other country. Each artist chose a statement about their country from someone on the other side of the world. The piece they made is a reaction to this statement.
Words spoken across the globe invite a personal study of our own culture and a reaction to other’s perceptions of who we are. Each piece is a navigation of an outsider’s perspective and the resulting realisations and revelations about our own identity.
The two cultures have been explored through unverified perceptions and understandings. The resulting objects are repositories of both cultural and personal narratives. They examine the global flow of information between two physically and culturally separate countries and provoke an international exploration of self.

Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery

Mari Funaki was a unique and passionate advocate for contemporary jewellery in Australia, both through her own remarkable practice and her establishment and directorship of Gallery Funaki.
This Award aims to celebrate Mari’s legacy by rewarding the skills and vision of jewellers both here and overseas and by providing a platform for outstanding new work to be shown here in Australia. A panel of three judges will award prizes in both established and emerging categories, with total prize money valued at AUD$11,000.

The judges are:
Warwick Freeman, an eminent New Zealand jeweller who has exhibited with Gallery Funaki since 1995. He is the recipient of the Francoise van den Bosch Prize (2002) and the Bayerischer Staatpreis ‘Modern Classic’ (2013).
Simon Cottrell, a prominent Australian jeweller and educator and currently acting head of the Gold and Silversmithing Workshop at ANU, Canberra. Cottrell has an extensive exhibition history and his work is held in numerous international collections.
Julie Ewington, a leading Australian art specialist with almost 40 years experience as an academic, writer and curator. Most recently Curatorial Manager at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art, she has a particular interest in contemporary jewellery and has written extensively on the topic, most recently in the 2013 Lark publication, ‘Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective’. She was recognised this year with an Australia Council for the Arts Visual Arts Award.
The Award is generously supported by Vivienne and Leo Donati, Johannes Hartfuss and Fabian Jungbeck

And the winners are…

In the established category, the judges chose Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklaces.

There are two winners in the emerging category. The first is Patrícia Correia Domingues with her pendant from the Duality series.
The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch from the Methamorphosis series .

In the emerging category, the judges also gave a commendation to Inari Kiuru’s two brooches from the Evolution series (right), saying “this commendation recognises the conceptual adventurousness of her project, which takes her across diverse materials to explore the inter-connectedness of natural and urban systems.”

And a commendation in the established category went to Jiro Kamata, for his Spiegel necklace (right). The judges said “this classical graduated necklace is composed of camera lenses and mirrors that bring viewers into the very substance of the piece. But, note, everyone who sees themselves will do so from a different perspective. This, in combination with its impeccable making, comprises its simple elegance.”

We extend warm congratulations to all the winning artists and thank everyone involved in the exhibition, which received an overwhelmingly positive response on this, its opening night.

 

Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery - Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklacesIn the established category, the judges chose Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklaces (2014, neckpiece, wood veneer, balsawood, brass, 220x240x18mm). Of these works, they commented: “They have a boldness of scale that makes them look challenging to wear, but the choice of materials and the subtlety of the construction make these pieces exceptionally successful on the body.
Veneer 1, 2 and 3 are deceptively straightforward titles, but we found that the pieces evoke many different associations and interpretations. They move and shift on the body, with their beautiful hinging adapting to the wearer. This is exceptional work.”
There are two winners in the emerging category. The first is Patrícia Correia Domingues with her pendant from the Duality series.

The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch from the Methamorphosis series .

Sara Gackowska Brooch: Membrane, 2013 Bio-resin, hematite, sterling silver 100x65x25mm
The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch (2013, brooch, bio-resin, hematite, sterling silver, 100x65x25mm) from the Methamorphosis series .
The judges said: “We greatly admired the elegant oppositions between the two main materials- dense hematite on the top surface, and spongy bio-resin on the base. There’s a wonderful necessary relationship between the two materials and the way the top surface appears broken, and fractured, precisely because of their interaction.”

Patrícia Correia Domingues -  WINNER OF THE Mari Funaki EMERGING PRIZEPatrícia Correia Domingues  with her pendant from the Duality series. (‘Duality’, 2014, pendant, artifical ivory,)Of this work, the judges said: “Patricia’s work Duality plays with oppositions between chance and deliberation – if you look at the piece, you’ll see that it seems highly structured – it’s a frame of artificial ivory, but she has embraced the possibilities of chance in fracturingthat form.”

Inari KIURU – Winter Thoughts

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Inari KIURU (FI),RMIT (AU) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

Inari Kiuru wins DIA Jewellery Award (Design Institute of Australia’s Australasian Student Design Awards 2011)

Craft Victoria Member and 2010 Fresh! exhibitor, Inari Kiuru, recently won the Jewellery category in the Design Institute of Australia’s Australasian Student Design Awards 2011 competition.
The RMIT Gold & Silversmithing graduate was nominated for her series Winter thoughts (Between two summers), created during 2010 under the supervision of Nicholas Bastin.

Inari Kiuru writes about the series:
« For this final year (at RMIT) series of jewellery, my research approach was to investigate experimental techniques in steel fabrication, surface texturing, and innovation in material use and generation.
Each piece in this series is a result of an experiment conducted in a small studio environment, using non-toxic, low cost, mostly recyclable materials which have traditionally been reserved for industrial uses. The series is titled Winter thoughts
as the colours, clean lines and dark tones emerging reminded me of the bare landscape in my native Finland, during the cold months.
I was especially interested in the qualities of very thin steel (such as shim and wire); alternative uses of industrial components such as plumbing mesh and pre-fabricated safety pins, and the application of liquid enamel which is only a very recent jewellery technique.

For characterising each material I first researched ways for non-toxic etching, and experimented with heat colouration of steel. PUK welding proved to be the best method for joining components as seams generated this way can withstand the heat of the kiln, for firing liquid enamel. Encaustic wax and fusing crystals enhanced the sense of winter elements, snow and ice, combining malleability with the firm metal elements. »

Inari Kiuru is currently undertaking a mentorship with Gordon Tait of design house TAIT and will also be collaborating with Studio Round in 2011 as outcomes of the 2010 Fresh! graduate exhibition.

COUP de COEUR : Inari KIURU – One hundred rings of solitude

Inari KIURU

« One hundred rings of solitude » …. cet intitulé m’a profondément touchée …. j’entends une voix de haute-contre chanter « Oh Solitude » (Purcell) ….. la ligne de chant rejoint les lignes-esquisses des bagues, à peine commencées, déjà finies, elles évoquent, suggèrent, esquissent, dessinent (alors qu’Inari Kiuru ne voulait pas dessiner …), montrent un chemin ………
pas une tristesse, juste un « passage », la ligne entre deux choses  …..

« This work belongs to a first year project at RMIT (Melboune (AU) University)  for which I made myself a set of rules: No drawing or sketching (my usual escapes), just model making from materials that might be unfamiliar to me, seeing if I could create one hundred different rings. How many I ended up with? 80? I still haven’t counted.
I remember that all this began from turning wire in a state of confusion about what a « contemporary look » might be, a concept so prevalent in the first year « art jewellery » discussions. I thought at the time that if I blast out something highly asymmetric, warped and quite monochromatic, preferably black and plasticky, avoiding precious metals, surely I’ll succeed – in an ironic way. But as I kept working, the pissed-offness at the notion of « contemporary = cliched » wore off, and the project became a fun experiment which I still like to look at.
Confusion remains, but in such a different way now : )  » (june 2010)
