THE CHALLENGE OF LEADERSHIP
A 1000 year-old tradition becomes hip
An episode from the series BONSAI BAD BOY
Masashi feels he is finally changing bonsai’s image of tired old men pruning trees.
His next radical idea is to perform at the international Setouchi Triennale, the largest art event in Japan. Masashi will stage an Avant Garde exhibition as well as a ground-breaking solo performance climaxing with a collaboration with a punk band.
Tradition and modernisation clash heads on.
