An immaculate end to a disembodied beginning is a series of works responding to Kuo Pao Kun's Descendents of the Eunuch Admiral. Specifically looking at the portions on castration and the many rooms described in the text, An immaculate end to a disembodied beginning looks at the agency of queer individuals within institutional structures wherein heteronormativity takes centre stage. Using various corporeal forms and adornments, the works become phenomenological responses to the various ideas of queerness, disavowal, and gossip within hegemonic structures, with open-ended questions as mirrors for ambiguous states.
