Together with invitation to the show, each artist received an original haiku or gogyohshi by Taro Aizu, and was asked to prepare an artwork inspired by the text. Acclaimed Japanese poet Taro Aizu, born and currently living in the prefecture of Fukushima, is also known to our audience from the last year’s exhibition 24 HOURS OF MANKIND – Mirek Antoniewicz & Friends.
Mirek Antoniewicz is the only representative of Poland and the poem he received from Taro Aizu tells about first sports events in the open air:
Rush across the finish line…
A sport festival
Based on this text, the artist prepared the painting titled Fukushima. It is a triptych (three parts 150 x 50 cm) made in technique of acrylic on paper.
