A renowned expert and antiques dealer specialising in ancient tribal art from Africa, Oceania and North America, Yann Ferrandin rigorously tracks down and selects the most exceptional and aesthetically striking objects. The eye-opening thematic exhibitions he stages in his gallery all result from many years of research, and often lead to the publication of catalogues that soon become reference works. Examples of these publications include: ‘Kongo, magical art’ in 2008; ‘Black Seat, exceptional seats from black Africa’ in 2010; ‘Kota’ in 2011, ‘Mélanesia’ in 2012 and ‘Hair’ in 2016. He works primarily with private international clients, and offers advice on collections. His policy of lending pieces for prestigious exhibitions has earned him the recognition of some of the largest museums in the world which also call on him regularly to enrich their collections.
