Being in Neighbourhood


Contemporary Practices, Volume IV

By Yahya M. Madra



Steve Sabella’s subversion of stamps, an important marker of the sovereignty of a nation-state, suggests us that the proper attitude toward the post-colonial partitioning of the region is to think be- yond it. By transposing the profile images of each participat- ing artist onto a stamp of another’s country, Sabella proposes that we need to think and act beyond the nation, as a part of the neighbourhood.
