cannot perform a issueFieldExactMatch search for an open curly bracket character '{'

I have figured how to successfully search for strings with special characters with the exception of open curly bracket characters '{'.

As an example, this query works:

issueFunction in issueFieldExactMatch("project = myproject)", Summary, "search + - & | ! ( ) } [ ] ^ ~ * ? \\\ : test")

Every special character is in the Jira I'm searching on and it gets properly returned in the result set.

If I add the open curly bracket, no escaping I can come up with makes it work (double backslash, unicode, etc.
