Description Aporetic - the undecidable, undecided, that which collapses identity, that which denounces representation, clear perception, and straightforward reception. Stemming from the Greek mythos of Poros, Penia, and Eros, the concept has found new importance in post-structuralist thought as one of the cornerstones of Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction. Yet its application does not remain in the past. The paper presents an introduction of aporia from the original mythos to the application in post-structuralist thought. The paper then applies the concept in the investigation of the issue of the division between the artist and their work, from “celebrities” of various strata throughout Western culture to the culprits of the recent campaign #metoo.
