Our hometown, Fukushima(3)
of her cat fur
As you can see, what does the cesium do?
I attacks our world, our nation, our environment, our human beings and our animals.
The cat tries to seek for protection under his own tail, he’s licking his fur,
not knowing the cesium is on it. It will end up in his stomach. The cesiumrain is killing
the fish and flowers are deforming, the beautiful cherryblossom will deformate as well.
On top of the cat you can see the bird, he’s very worried. How can i stop this disaster?

Gogyoshi Art Project : My Hometown Fukushima
An exhibition with Dutch artists inspired by Taro Aizu a Japanese poet from fukushima.
‘Gogyoshi Art Project’ is a Dutch art exhibition, initiated by Ed Hanssen and Fred van Welie. The exhibition is inspired by the poems (Gogyoshi) of Taro Aizu. These poems, called ‘My Hometown Fukushima’ tells us about the nuclear disaster after the tsunami of March 2011 (see: https://www.facebook.com/taro.aizu).
At first, The Japanese artist Chiyuky Itoga was inspired by Aizu’s poems. She created her project “100 artworks for Fukushima” (https://www.facebook.com/100ArtworksforFukushima). It was this combination of beauty, precision, death and wonder that Ed Hanssen -at the time in Japan urged to start The Gogyoshi Art Project.
Ed Hanssen translated the poems of Aizu for this project and invited artists from all provinces of The Netherlands to get inspired. In the poems writes Aizu about the people of Fukushima, his love for his hometown, his wonder, and the meltdown of the nuclear reactor in March 2011.
The Gogyoshi Art Project, In short ‘GAP’, is a gap indeed. Aizu’s poems try to inspire Dutch artists to reduce the gap between East and west. The project brings social media and real life closer, together. The project touches the social consciousness of the artists and visitors and creates understanding for each other’s situation; for a situation in a country far from here: Japan.
In Europe, the disaster is quickly forgotten. However, in Fukushima the problems still persist. The Gogyoshi Art Project is not just one exhibition: it is ‘traveling and growing’. The first one, with 36 of the now already 90 participating artists was held in November 2012 in Lelystad. In January 2013 the second exhibition was at the University of Wageningen and in the Junuss theater in the centre of the city. In February 15, the third exhibition is in “The Snake” exhibition room in Amsterdam. From March 3, the artists were at POST in Kerkrade (Limburg) and in October it’s Friesland’s turn (Expomeer – Grou).
For the other provinces we are eagerly looking for suitable locations. There has been interest from abroad. Artists from Spain, France and Brazil, Sweden and Poland are also getting inspired by Aizu’s poems.
In the mean time, some A4-sized personal stories/drawings by the artists, made especially for the the exposition in Lelystad, also are exposed now at “100 artworks for Fukushima” in Fukushima.

#26acts Newtown, CT USA 2012
Schoolshooting Sandy Hook, 20 kinderen van 5-7 jaar en 6 leraressen werden vermoord.
e-ster-art reageerde op haar manier op de oproep van CNN journaliste #Ann Curry, die de inwoners van de USA vroeg op voor ieder overleden kind een goede daad te doen. Esther schilderde voor ieder kind een persoonlijk engeltje met kenmerken die bij het kindje hoorde, vervolgens zijn alle 26 schilderijtjes opgestuurd naar de board of education in Connecticut naar USA, die ze heeft overgedragen aan de ouders.
Wat vooraf ging:
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members. Prior to driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived at the scene, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. The incident was the deadliest mass shooting at a high school or grade school in U.S. history and the second-deadliest mass shooting by a single person in U.S. history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings.The shooting prompted renewed debate about gun control in the United States, including proposals for making the background-check system universal, and for new federal and state legislation banning the sale and manufacture of certain types of semi-automatic firearms and magazines with more than ten rounds of ammunition. A November 2013 report issued by the Connecticut State Attorney’s office concluded that Lanza acted alone and planned his actions, but no evidence collected provided any indication as to why he did so, or why he targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School.
