Q&A- Anne Kerchache
Collector - France
Over 30 years, Anne and Jacques Kerchache amassed possibly the world’s greatest collection of West African voodoo art: sculptures made from wood, shells and animal skulls for tribal rituals, collected on travels through Benin, Nigeria and Togo. Jacques Kerchache became a key art adviser to Jacques Chirac and, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his death, his wife Anne (now Mrs Kamal Douaoui) is exhibiting a selection of the collection at the Fondation Cartier.
