Steve Sabella's Ecdysis. The Catharsis of Metamorphosis
Dorothea Schoene
Contemporary Practices Art Journal


"It was inevitable that once the euphoria settled down, which is by nature ephemeral, my core had to be shaken again. The hard work is now. Metamorphosis is a process, a long one, and the reconstruction of the self, especially for people who come from conflict zones, should be done with core ingredients that have shaped their lives and perception."

Gaston Bachelard wrote that "outside and inside form of a dialectic of division, the obvious geometry of which blinds us as soon as we bring it into play in metaphorical domains". Sabella's reconstructed fragmentations of the two sides of the same windows represents his metaphor's embodiment of 'home' and 'exile'. By allegorizing what Bachelard went on to call "the dialectics of here and there", Sabella gave a visual body to the "awareness of simultaneous dimensions" that Edward Said wrote in his description of the experience of the exiled.
