Stephanie Bailey examines Sin Wai Kin’s recent development, marked by a name change from Victoria Sin, and a shift away from traditional drag performances. Bailey shows how Sin’s practice is driven by a desire to transcend dualities, but paradoxically manifests in the very impulse to divide. Works including A Dream of Wholeness in Parts and It’s Always You are discussed in relation to Daoist thought, theorisations of the self and philosophies of identity to foreground Sin’s complex engagement with a fluid universality that goes beyond gender and cultural dichotomies.
