Description

In PART ONE/SHE WAS MORE THAN THE SUM OF MY PARTS, the narrator recounts a strange event – leafing through a fashion magazine, they encounter an image of a character who bears an extraordinary resemblance to them. Fascinated by their newfound resemblance, they are trying to find a meaningful way to connect with the image. All the while the viewer only sees Sin’s character, and as the camera approaches, the imperfections on their drag persona come to light – the loose eyelashes, the visible wigline… Thus, the image is revealed to be a construction, and a live body emerges from underneath the drag.
