According to Buddha Jumps over the Wall, the famous cuisine made of animals ingredients such as pig, lamb, chicken, duck, fish, turtle and so forth, ZHANG Ding produced a group of animal plaster sculpture. He invited special effects expert from Shanghai Film Studio to carry out the controlled explosion, imitating the shootings and explosions and utilising advanced filming technology. Accompanied by the magnificent and solemn symphony, animals plaster sculpture were blasted, one by one and then massive explosion, and finally shattered into pieces. High-speed camera lens grasped every moment of the blasting, with liquid and debris flying everywhere in a shocking and cruel manner. It continues with the unique aesthetic expression always displayed in ZHANG Ding's works. Similar to the preparation of cooking materials, the video Buddha Jump Over the Wall, as the beginning point of the whole project, provides materials for the other works in the exhibition and lays foundation for the entire atmosphere.
