Within the ancient folklore of Japan is the legend of the mysterious aquatic creature the “Kagewani” (shadow crocodile). An enormous shadow would appear suddenly from the sea, taking the lives of those whose shadows it consumed. Artist Hiromu Minamoto will bring the strange existence of the “Kagewani” to life, creating a steel framework draped in an iron cloth. The work will be concealed in the vicinity of Roppongi Hills Arena, with performances happening spontaneously. Performer and audience will become one in this work “Kagewani” which cannot be missed.


Hiromu Miyamoto

Born in 1985 in Mie Prefecture. Using mixed media, creates sculptures that express the “extended” human body. Since exhibiting at the 2016 Art Challenge, has been making sensory-based art where works are moved by human power. At the Nagokon Art Festival 2017, collaborated with contemporary dancers in holding stage performances. Has since been active in a wide variety of genres, showing his works and holding performances. “Kagewani” was previously performed outdoors in Aichi Prefecture, and this will be the first time it will be performed in Tokyo.
