Assoukrou Aké is a multidisciplinary artist, who freely explores different plastic forms ranging from installation to sculpture, through engraving and textile works, to elaborate what he calls ‘a healing narrative’. His work bears the traces of Africa’s social, medical and political history as well as his personal history of cultural dualities, silences and revealed words. The artist succeeds in mixing drama, humour and poetry in sensitive works that revolve around the practice of counter-gesture and the search for the reverse.


“ The characters that I bring to life in my work constitute, through fragments and through a kind of constellation, an archive of African consciousness that mixes the sacred and the profane to better reveal the essence of human life, that of a fragmented identity that needs to be reinvented. ”

(Assoukrou Aké)


Assoukrou Aké has been nominated for numerous awards in France, and has participated in several residency programmes. In 2022, he is the winner of the Ellipse Art Prize. His work has been included in various group exhibitions.

Born in 1995 in Bonoua, Ivory Coast, Assoukrou Aké lives and works today between Paris and Abidjan, Ivory Coast.


After an artistic baccalaureate obtained in Ivory Coast, Assoukrou Aké chose France to pursue his higher education, first in art history and archaeology at the University of Paris 10 in Nanterre, then at the École Supérieure d’Art et de Design in Tours, from which he will graduate in 2021.
