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.”

Helen Britton: Pairs of Pieces

Helen Britton, Brooches, 2013(Helen Britton – Brooches   2013 – 925 silver, diamonds, vintage plastics)

« When I’m making my work, although I rarely have a clear idea of the end result, I am in pursuit of a fleeting vision that I chase along until the pieces start to materialize on my worktable. Over so many years of making I have observed that this often results in pairs of pieces. There they are then, in the end, these two friendly companions, singing together, vibrating at the right intensity, complementing each other, yet quite autonomous.
What happened along the way? Was there just too much to say to fit into one work? The vision is often dense and chaotic, so perhaps it is a kind of spreading and organizing within the creative process that produces the two possibilities. And this is jewellery after all, so there needs to be space for the wearer.
It not only like this though. At other times, works are being made or coming back to the studio. I lay them out to revisit them, learn more about them, and during this process I recognize quite clearly relationships between pairs, that may in fact be separated by months or even years. For this exhibition I have made and gathered works that examine this experience. »

David Bielander: Escapade

David Bielander returns to Melbourne for a new exhibition, following on from his career-high exhibition, ‘Demiurge’ at the Museum of Modern Art, Arnhem. Bielander’s jewellery and objects are famous for their keenly observed wit, conceptual depth and technical virtuosity, as he interprets natural and man-made forms in a particularly idiosyncratic, unexpected and brilliant way.

EXPO ‘Almost Invisible’ – Gallery Funaki (AU) – 23 Juill.-17 Aout 2013

Classé dans : Australie (AU),Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Funaki (AU),Henriette SCHUSTER (DE) — bijoucontemporain @ 15:12
Gallery Funaki Henriette Schuster's beautiful show, 'Almost Invisible'

In her first solo exhibition at Gallery Funaki, Munich based artist Henriette Schuster presents a collection of jewellery that uses precious metals in simple, almost naïve ways to explore basic aesthetic relationships between two similar forms. In addition, we will be showing a series of Schuster’s drawings that both draw from and feed into her jewellery practice.

Sometimes the most affecting gestures are very small and very quiet. Schuster creates jewellery and drawings that shy away from bold declarations and instead, wait quietly for close attention. Working with silver and thread, Henriette’s jewellery is arrestingly simple and direct: small elements, often in pairs, sit in delicate balance with one another, a subtle dance of interdependence and connection. Familiar household objects like teacups, thimbles and brushes take on unexpected symbolism and tenderness as they hang, paired and companionate, on boldly coloured elastic. Tubes of silver are bent in simple and graphic forms, creating drawings on the body. And Schuster’s drawings, which will be shown for the first time in Australia, are studies in understatement and lightness. Schuster’s vision is unobtrusive but always quietly compelling.

EXPO ‘Second nature’ – Gallery Funaki, Melbourne (AU) – 5 Fevr.-2 Mars 2013

second nature -   Julie Blyfield

« second nature, n.
An acquired behavior or trait that is so long practiced as to seem innate. »

Julie Blyfield 'Folded Leaf' neckpiece, 2012 / sterling silver Julie Blyfield ‘Folded Leaf’ neckpiece, 2012 / sterling silver

Working from one day to the next I focus my attention on observations from nature and working with an ephemeral resource. Using the skills, materials and techniques that are second nature to my practice, I wanted to see where my work would lead as the year progressed. Inspired from things that I observe in the garden or sight on my daily walks, visits to new and different places, observing the change of seasons, altering colours and senses, a visit to Japan and experiencing different mindsets. As the year progresses forms emerge, beginning with loose marks and sketches until paper maquettes evolve and the urgency to translate and make begins, decisions are made, altered and resolved. Materials are selected and ordered. The process repeats over and over, echoing nature’s cycles and repetition. A new beginning is waiting for me and my work.”  Julie Blyfield, 2013

EXPO ‘Karl Fritsch: Die Allgäuer Ringmaschine’ – Gallery Funaki, Melbourne (AU) – 3-9 Sept. 2012

Karl Fritsch: Die Allgäuer Ringmaschine

German jeweller Karl Fritsch is a cult jewellery icon and the maker of the most covetable rings in the world. Now residing in New Zealand, Fritsch uses gold, silver and precious stones to make pieces that seem to have been unearthed from some distant, romantic era… but the imaginary ravages of time and entropy have left these rings more fascinating, more compelling and more desirable than ever.
