London Launch Of Internationally Exhibited Artist From Palestine Steve Sabella’s Book 'The Parachute Paradox' | SOAS

Steve Sabella will launch the English-language, limited edition of his memoir, with a reading, discussion with Dr Siba Aldabbagh and Professor Wen-Chin Ouyang, Q&A, and signing. A reception in the Brunei Foyer will follow from 8:00 - 9:00 pm.
The occupation of Palestine attaches each Palestinian to an Israeli, as if in a tandem jump. The Israeli is always in control, placing the Palestinian under threat, in a never-ending hostage situation. Born in Jerusalem’s Old City, Steve Sabella found himself with two options: either surrender to this impossible reality, or unbuckle his harness and take a leap of faith.
Exploring love and loss, it traces one man’s arduous search for liberation from within, through a confrontation with his colonized imagination.

“For many years my life was held hostage by Israeli occupation, but in my dreams I was free. Once I learned how to change my own consciousness, my dreams became my reality. I was born under Israeli occupation but found a way to live free.”

Sabella’s memoir travels from the Old City to London, Dubai, and Berlin, interweaving reflections on art and life, and his pursuit of global citizenship. Al-Araby Al-Jadeed has already hailed The Parachute Paradox for handling, "an issue unprecedented in Palestinian literature.”
