Story of a Passion

Histoire
d'une Passion

Collector and dealer specializing in primitive art since 1994, Olivier Larroque first worked in Paris before moving to Nîmes where he opened his gallery in 2004.

A member of Parcours des Mondes since 2005, he has published several thematic catalogues for this event: Masques (2009), Figures libres (2010), Lignes claires – Matières obscures (2017), Microcosm (2018), Essence des formes et Materia (2019), Sculptures (2020), 21 Grams, Corpus, Focus (2021), Collection Hiver, Printemps, Été (2022) and Éloge de l’ombre (2022). He also participates in the main international tribal art fairs : Bruneaf and Cultures in Brussels, Bourgogne Tribal Show or Tribal Art Amsterdam.

In 2010, his book Vaca Bruto, du quotidien au sacré, taureaux d'Afrique Noire (Vaca Bruto, from the everyday to the sacred, bulls of Black Africa), is published, for which he curated the eponymous exhibition at the Nîmes Museum. He is a member of the Tribal Society organization.
