In ‘Apart’, the unity and identity of the body, as it can be perceived from the outside, makes place for fragmentation and alienation.
The various parts of the body appear literally and figuratively to be isolated from each other, and seem to be functioning almost independently from each other. as autonomous parts. Yet there is no explanatory context from outside which determines the meaning: the bodies invariably seem to be engrossed in themselves, to come back to themselves, and the impulses and movements affecting the disintegrated parts seem to come from within rather than from the outside. It is as if the body, having reached the highest level of self-reflection, obliviously but intimately exposes itself to the viewer.
