Hiroshi Nakao, Susanne Kohte | 庭 Niwa - A New Garden for the Japanese House | Boisbuchet 2018

In this workshop we intended to create a Japanese-English garden out of the field on which an old Japanese house stands. The house was donated to Domaine de Boisbuchet and it is situated now in a pastoral setting of the remains of an English landscape garden. The intent of the workshop was to invent, to create and to establish connections between the Japanese house and its surroundings, between the interior of the house and the exterior, between our bodies and nature, between the past and the present…

In this sense, the garden elements that we arranged act like punctuation marks to re-define, to re-read, or rather: to interpret the landscape of Boisbuchet.

Filming and editing by Diego Delgado.
