A Drift | Rebecca Anne Proctor | Harper’s Bazaar Arabia

January/February 2015

As the artist himself shares. ‘Once we are locked inside the images of ourselves, these images take on a life of their own… [They] often outlast us and can replace us as the ‘remembered reality.’ lt has taken time for Sabella to free himself from the mental torments of exile and displacement. Those familiar with his work will remember his series ‘In Exile’ (2008) when this was first apparent. Here we witnessed the initial visualisation of his movement into freedom through images whereby the artist destroyed and assembled symbols of entry and exile…. These pieces challenge the photographic image of Palestine as do his new works in ‘Independence’.
