THE MASTER AND THE APPRENTICE
This project explores the relationship between Japanese Imperial Palaces and Garden´s master gardeners and their apprentices. Becoming a master gardener in these places can take up to 10 years, being a highly respected profession in which 90% are men.
The Master and the Apprentice also explores concepts such as nature, it´s artificial representation, the theatre of power and masculinity in Japanese culture and their theatrical reconstructions of “the nature ideal”.
