The Community: Shanzai, was part of the group exhibition “European, Foreign & Domestic” at Averard Hotel London, curated by @slateprojects.
For the piece we visited Thames Town, an area outside of Shanghai that is a copy of typical British townhouse architecture found commonly in London, including a 1:1 copy of church in Bristol.
