10th June: last day for Studio Ingot, Regine Schwarzer ‘Mineral Manifestations‘; “The work of Regine Schwarzer is influenced by the crystalline structure of rocks and minerals. Schwarzer cuts her own stones and uses the geometry of gems as a design element, but more recently has begun experimenting with fusing crushed and ground minerals onto metal surfaces with base enamel. This exhibition is a collection of new sculptural forms that adorn both body and space, and showcase Schwarzer’s mastery of the mineral kingdom.” [link]

14th June: last day for Gallery Funaki, Helen Britton ‘pairs of pieces‘ [link]; see my review post

19th June: Craft, Kirsten Haydon ‘Ice storeroom‘ [link]; “The ice has a remarkable quality of preserving and storing knowledge within its structure. Inclusions, both micro and macro, in the ice can provide detail about the moment the ice was formed. This knowledge could be accessed from analysing the trapped gases or dust particles or by connecting with the narrative of an enclosed man-made object. In this installation Ice storeroom builds on Haydon’s previous work with Antarctica and explores the notion that Antarctica is a repository for environmental and cultural knowledge.“; until 26th July

22nd June: last day for Lindy McSwan ‘Five Horizons‘, Sofitel Hotel foyer; following her fabulous success in Fresh! 2012; “My work in the Sofitel is an expression of my experience and enduring memory of travel to remote desert landscapes in Central Australia. The underlying notion contemplates the enormity of the horizon.  In particular the rare phenomenon of a 360 degree horizon where one’s sense of self is heightened and the scale of the earth becomes evident. In these rare experiences the red horizon is an undulating, continual line subtly describing the curvature of the earth’s surface framing distance and time.” [link]
