From a purely quantum point of view, the Boson, a "force-carrying" particle, is an energy or force field that interacts with its environment. Depending on its low or high energy, the boson can open up existing symmetries or to the contrary shatter them. The Boson is one of the four forces of nature according to quantum physics. 
But what about the African Bosons? The energy of the ancestors, the spirits watching over humanity.
The term 'Boson' is an Akan idiom that conveys the ideal of what relates to the world of spirits, guiding genies, the supernatural and so on.
This duo cannot be dissolved. These two concepts interact and feed off each other.
Both the quantum and the metaphysical interact with us and with our thoughts in the same way. Yet many people reject this idea of spirits because they are invisible to our rational minds. Yet the protons, electrons, cells and other energies that are also invisible to our human eyes are now embedded in our modern reality.
Can we not accept the metaphysical as an intrinsic dimension of our human consciousness?
These are the questions that I draw for you so that you consider the reality of the visible and the invisible.

Ernest Dükü
Born in Bouake in 1958, from Abidjan to Paris, Ernest Dükü continuously draws inspired by African traditional history and symbolism in a strong spirit of ecumenism. 
His works draw on the calling of Africa and a spirit of open-mindedness. Through his plastic and esthetic research as well as the codes and messages he leaves to decipher in his works, Ernest Dükü offers a new perspective on the world between sculpture and painting. His art opens up new pathways toward looking at the complexity of the world.  
The work of Ernest Dükü also has a sociopolitical dimension. For those who carefully observe, it takes part in a very contemporary debate around religious syncretism in order to transcend it. His art aims at going beyond religious quarrels and plays the game of life where each of us is deemed to question the untold part of our memories.
