This exhibition features a new lithograph created in collaboration with IDEM Paris, as well as a piece influenced by Space Sheriff Gavan, wall drawings and three-dimensional artworks. This unique attempt and artwork to integrate appropriations from contemporary pop cultures actual to the artist and a classic of European literature will allow the artist to freely transcends ages, generations and the border between East and West.”Polia’s Nightmare” is a sequel to “The Dream of Polifilo” at Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, and both exhibitions are to complement each other while different in their contents. In addition, another ongoing exhibition by the artist “Carne de Polifilo” at Institut français Tokyo exhibits concept sketches for “The Dream of Polifilo”. We hope you enjoy this wonderful occasion to understand Buffe’s creation through all three exhibitions.YAMAMOTO GENDAI”Poliphilo’s Strife of Love in a Dream” (Hypnerotomachia Poliphili ) consists of two books with different tones. The first book is dedicated to the quest in dream of Poliphilo seeking the love of his beloved Polia. It features many architectural descriptions. The second book, made with several stories nested inside each other, like layers of dreams, recounts the love stories of Poliphilo and Polia. Polia tells Poliphilo her adventures and also shared some nightmares she saw. The reader of the Hypnerotomachia will realize in the end that the second book is a dream in the dream of the first book.
