Hara Museum of Contemporary Art (Tokyo)

This event has ended.

Nicolas Buffe became an overnight sensation as the innovative art director for the opera Orlando Paladino staged at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris in 2012. Born in Paris and now based in Tokyo, Buffe creates art that is grand and yet lighthearted with a style that fuses together Japanese and American sub-cultures with classical European aesthetics. For Buffe, love and aspiration, struggle and victory, life and death are universal themes, whether in classical European art or Japanese role-playing video games. They lie at the heart of the present exhibition and the adventures that face the young hero Polifilo within a museum transformed by Buffe‘s rich imagination and Augmented Reality technology into a labyrinth of murals and installations.
