Serge Schoffel was just 20 years old when he became fascinated with tribal art. His growing passion led him on numerous trips to remote areas of the Philippines and Indonesia in the early 1990s. Soon afterwards he returned to university to study anthropology at the Université de Paris-VIII-Vincennes. Born in France, Serge Schoffel has been a tribal art dealer for over 30 years. In 2003, he established his gallery in the Sablon district in Brussels, where he continues to propose his rigorously curated selection of sculptures from Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania, South-East Asia and the Americas. A member of ROCAD.be and the Belgian Chamber of Art Experts, he has curated several exhibitions and has published numerous books and catalogues. Every year, he focuses on a specific theme at BRAFA. This year’s display highlights the spirituality of the symbols the Central Australian Aboriginal people employ in their non-figurative rock and wood carvings, adding their own vision of the sacred to the history of humanity. The gallery is also presenting a selection of new acquisitions from other continents.
