On this tour, participants will get the chance to visit the art works of Roppongi Art Night 2022 with artist Kazuhiko Hiwa, while pushing and moving wheelchairs like the one that Hiwa himself uses daily. Tour participants and art appreciators will gain insight into what the perspective from the wheelchair looks like, leading them to consider issues of physicality and accessibility. Furthermore, by realizing this through their own physicality, participants can look forward to a sense of unity among the group.
Born in Osaka. Rooted in the concept of hiwadrome, artist Hiwa creates video works themed to physicality and installations that utilize the model of wheelchair that he uses. He also engages in playful public interventions in the form of performances and projects that inquire into issues of barriers, relationships, and accessibility. Recent exhibitions include Water Ripple Exhibition 2021 (Watarium Museum, 2021), ART SCRAMBLE (Grand Front Osaka, 2022), and others.
