A Colour Trilogy
Exhibition-atelier of photography - Authors aged 4-14
The children’s “game” became that of reconstructing the Italian flag by looking for everyday objects in colour combinations that represent the flag.
White is “a colour that waits”, sought out in lightness and tastes; a place of imagination inhabited by probable/improbable inhabitants through the use of cameras and other interconnected tools – webcams and a microstereoscope.
The children discover red in the lips of friends; in the actions that create billowing in a long length of satin fabric; in red wine that is liquid, but dense with fascinating shapes.
Precious green, vital (to life, vita), is attributed to the beating of green butterfly wings and to the process of a plant’s growth.
Older children give fragments of colour found in urban landscapes to the Italian flag, perhaps a dead-end railway track, or a Social Centre. Their refined compositions of colour reveal hidden identities of the colour-material, gradually getting closer and zooming in. These urban traces, projections of their culture, are eyes that re-invent, re-interpretations of their surroundings, of their tricolour.
