The MAST Foundation, in collaboration with Fondazione MAXXI, presents in Rome “Tales of Light,” an exhibition that illustrates the photography workshop created by Nino Migliori at the MAST Nursery School from 2015 on. A celebrated artist and experimenter animated by contagious enthusiasm and a tireless spirit of exploration, for over two years Nino has accompanied the children and educators in their discovery of the photographic media as a form of writing and a surprising mechanism for the creation of storytelling images. Under his guidance, children from 3 to 5 years of age have learned to make use of camera-less techniques such as oxidation, cellograms, polarigrams, lightgrams and photograms, discovering new ways of observing, telling about and transforming their world, with method and fantasy.
The collaboration between Nino and the children gave shape to a happily confused multiplicity of images that radiate joie de vivre: feet, hearts, leaves, dogs, trees, circles, pyramids, detached or assembled pieces, teddy bears, balls, gauze, spanners, gears, moving children.
Through 87 works, the exhibition aims to present this extraordinary experience. Visitors will encounter the creative process conceived by Nino and the “tales of light” written by the children in the unfettered expression of their thoughts, emotions, and desires.
