For this exhibition, the ground floor gallery is transformed into a cinema,“1971-2000” (2012) opens up a

box of memories of the cinematic classics that have left enormous impact on Cheng and his peers who would

access contemporary cinema through second-hand resources, bootleg products and much recently the

internet. Appropriating iconic elements from “A Clockwork Orange” ( Stanely Kubrick, 1971) and “The

Million Dollar Hotel” (Wim Wenders, 2000), the artist created a new film of a young man throwing himself off

the rooftop, which however reconciles the contradicting beliefs and viewpoints in these two classics.
