END OF DAYS

2003

Installation of light boxes placed at random and floating in a completely darkened room

 
   
   
Spring 2003, a new war starts... I look at my images, images that were once part of the world I created myself... Suddenly I could see through them. I discovered they hid a different reality. I had been living in an illusion; in a world that does not really exist, except in my subconsciousness. The ground beneath my feet shakes. I wake up to discover that my world is changing again.

Steve Sabella - Photography 1997-2014
By Hubertus von Amelunxen
 
Monograph
 

Between 1997 and 2003 Sabella photographed three series, Search (1997), Identity (2002), and End of Days (2003): from the alienated impression of black-and-white nature, the walling in of things in Search, to the colorful expanses of the landscape, the deserts, cliffs, and furrowed fields in Identity and to the opening to abstraction initiated through a reversal of the light in End of Days. “To be a work means to set up a world,” Heidegger writes, and this building and unbuilding accompany Sabella’s work.
