Call for poems
One of the ideas in which GAPi(Gogyoshi Art Project international) wishes to express solidarity
and hope is by a call for poems. We call upon everybody who wants to participate, to write a
poem based upon “Fukushima after the disaster of 2011”, and express their feeling of solidarity and hope. Or a related theme. Specificly we call upon the children and grown ups of the municipality of Maaseik, Belgium. Every poem we receive will be shown in the exhibition of GAPi “Solidarity and Hope”, with artworks by
many international artists who participate within this project.
This exhibition will be held from 13 january 2017 untill 20 march 2017 in CC Achterolmen,
Maaseik, Belgium.

What is GAPi:
Gogyoshi Art Project int. is a non-profit artproject aiming to build bridges between
East and West by artmaking based upon the fiveline poems(gogyoshi) by Taro Aizu.
His poems from “My Fukushima”and “The precious earth” are the inspiration and they
tell about the consequences of the tsunami en melt down in Fukushima, march 2011.
Taro writes with almost photographic precision about what he sees, feels and thinks,
by which hope, love, simplicity and wonder become tangible.
GAPi wants to give hope, strenght and support to those who suffered from this disaster.
GAPi shows solidarity and respect.
GAPi already had many exhibitions in the Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Brasil,
Macedonia and South-Korea.
In the Belgian exhibition several Belgian artists will take part.
The driving forces behind GAPi are Fred van Welie and initiator Ed Hanssen.

Human and Augmentation (2015 - 2016)
 
I
Conceptions,
biological values by itself...
Augmentation by inside
of the matrix with
and out of conscious.
 
II
Conceptions of variation by the
biological values ...
Augmentation than
of the matrix inside
and outside of conscious.
 
III Conception
bios and reduction
You and I therefore
WE ARE IN MOTION ...

Vroegtijdig verscheurd
 
Ik hoop dat je nooit
Voelt
Hoe haar ziel lijdt
Nooit meer zijn haar ogen droog
 
Nooit meer lente
Zomer
Herfst voorgoed voorbij
Nooit meer winter
 
Het offer
 
Haar lichaam stil
Hoofd leeg
Haar hart zo koud
 
Deining woest en golvenhoog
 
Nu
 
Ik smeek je
Hoor haar
 
Tot troost haar vinden zal
 
Alsjeblief
Blijf

Een gedicht
 
Zonder mens
 
Wat is de aarde prachtig!
Wat een schoonheid is
Moeder Natuur!
 
De zee
De bossen
 
Wonderschoon is het!
 
Volmaakt
en nooit
af.
 
Zo prachtig
zonder de mens
om dit alles te zien
 
Zonder de mens
om dit alles te
besmeuren
 
Zonder de mens
om dit alles te
vernietigen
 
is Moeder Aarde
prachtig!
 
Maar de mens
bestaat.

Zinloos geweld
Is dat niet
een falende overheid bij de kernramp
als gevolg van een tsunami?
Is dat niet
het overlijden als gevolg van een arrestatie?
Is dat niet
het aantal doden als gevolg van een aanslag
Is dat niet
een oorlog tussen volkeren?
Is dat niet
de oneerlijke verdeling tussen arm en rijk?
 
Zinloos geweld
Is dat niet
EhÖ.zinloos?

TOGETHER
WE ARE
FOREVER
