Changing Parts

Mona Hatoum

1985, 24:00 minutes, B&W, English


One part refers to an organized, clearly defined, privileged and ordered reality and the other to a reality of disorder, chaos, war and destruction. But this opposition turns out to be full of contradictions as inside and outside become interchangeable and in the disorder can also be seen as an expression of birth and the sensuousness of life.
