The third of Gordon Cheung's paintings was Death by a Thousand Cuts. Mr Monkey reckoned that the exhibition had been named after this painting. The title refers to a method of execution, used in China from around 900 to 1905, which attracted a disproportionate amount of interest in the West. Again, Mr Monkey admired the layers of acrylic gel. He was surprised to find that what he thought was a building was actually a stack of acrobats.
