Fragmentation or deconstruction art?

At first I wondered if I was looking at deconstruction art, a late 20th century movement where the theory of “Deconstruction”, is a form of semiotic analysis. It is characterized by fragmentation, an interest in manipulating a structure’s surface, skin and non-rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate. However this art form as primarily focused on architecture such as the infamous Guggenheim.

Later I read an article reviewing the writing of French philosopher Jacques Derrida and in which he describes Deconstruction belonging to the Postmodern Culture where “uncertainty and self-awareness are now the issue at hand rather than taste and beauty and this redefines our notion of aesthetic judgment.” On Destruction as an Aesthetic Theory. 

The reviewing author sums up by commenting:

Deconstruction enables us to slice through the history of art and lay bare all preconceived notion, forcing us to examine every aspect of our relation to the world, to the notion of culture and each other. Its use of Semiotics has deepened our self-awareness, as we are now conscious of our use of signs and their power of manipulation.
Yet in today’s modern art, deconstructionism appears to be used as shock value. It forces the viewer to wonder about the purpose, the fragility and the symbolism of the base ingredients of the image. It may alter one’s approach to the art object and itself be altered by the encounter (quote from Stephen Melville essay).
Fragmentation or conscious deconstruction art .. what do you think?
* Semiotics, or semiology, is the study of signs, symbols, and signification. It is the study of how meaning is created, not what it is.
