Recreates Gentile Bellini’s Miracle at the Bridge of San Lorenzo (1500). Allchurch presents Venice on one side of the Grand Canal, mirrored by a modern luxury designer outlet near Tianjin, in Northeast China, on the other. Built to resemble a Venetian streetscape, this new and sanitised Italian style retail development aims for a casual authenticity, but on closer examination is very much a pastiche; a stage set lacking in depth and patina, accommodating outlets for upmarket Italian fashion brands on its ground floors, and offering a pleasant and luxurious shopping experience in its presumptuous surroundings. In an unnerving juxtapostion of the genuine and the artificial, the boundary between the two becomes blurred, as consumers freely cross from one side to the other.
