StatementA Jewel, A Story
Motivated by an urge for independence and a highly-developed aesthetic sense, Annick Zufferey has chosen to set up her contemporary jewellery gallery in Carouge, a neighbourhood to which she has been attached since childhood.
Initially there was the desire to create objects. This need travelled and finally led her to the creation of jewellery, and then on to valorising jewellery creators. In 1995, she inaugurated galerie A, which was specialized in contemporary jewellery. Then, in 2003, she opened her shop Place des Charmettes where she has set her heart on presenting the works which appeal to her, move and inspire her, and passing them on to whoever is ready to discover the stories they tell.
The Gallery is dedicated to artists’ creations, which is an artistic discipline in its own right. This implies a creation whose independent spirit has blossomed outside the manufacturing context - meaningful, poetic and original. It moves along the side-lines, light years away from conformist ‘classical’ or ‘luxury’ jewellery… luxury here is something else.
The jewel cannot be summed up simply as a decorative element, or an accessory with no practical purpose. It represents an area of endless research which, thanks to new-found freedom since the 1960s, enables creators to explore meaning, function and use and to experiment with innumerable techniques and substances. It is a terrain close to contemporary art.
Presenting the work of Swiss and international artists, a permanent collection gives an idea of the incredible creativity and diversity of this avant-garde discipline.
Every year, the Gallery organizes several solo exhibitions for well-known artists as well as for promising new talents.
