DOUBLE PROTECTION IS A VISUAL EXPLORATION OF PRIVATE BELIEF-SYSTEMS AND SURVIVAL THROUGH THE PRACTICES OF TWO AFRICAN EMIGRÉ ARTISTS.

LIBERIAN-BORN JOHNSON WEREE CREATES FIGURATIVE TALISMANS IN AN INFORMAL STUDIO WITHIN HIS ADOPTED HOMELAND, WHILE ABU BAKARR MANSARAY’S MONUMENTAL DEATH-MACHINE DESIGNS HAVE GARNERED CRITICAL ACCLAIM SINCE THEIR INCLUSION IN THE VENICE BIENNALE.

TOGETHER THEY SPEAK TO AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE MODERN WORLD WHERE ART-MAKING IS BOTH A SOURCE OF COMFORT AND STRENGTH.
