Ivory Coast: Identity and Vitality of Contemporary Art
The Ivory Coast, through its cultural dynamism, a vibrant example in Africa. The selected artists, through their works, express a deep dimension of their origins, a strong connection that allows encodement of shapes, materials, emotions, places and spaces.
Among the various artists exhibited, Ernest Dükü strikes as a culture and African symbolism lover. He has developed a strongly personal art, strongly narrative, between oriental mysticism and classic mythological imagination. With the aid of symbols he allows various levels of reading and metaphors of thoughts. Beyond the beauty of the images, a mystic side of his vision of life.
