This performance duo ExFormation has been in existence since 2018. The artistic encounter of Vier und Art (Olivier Schlund) painter and Sophie Scheifele photographer.
ExFormation is between performance and video art, a commitment that questions society, time through naked actions as close as possible to a sensitive and fragile human being.
This blog presents our work in collaboration with other artists, places, ideas, projects and our daily dynamics.
In contrast to the word and its sense, it is a new formation, two free human individuals, who question information as a measurable value by means of the performing arts. Everything that lies between the information in a matrix filled with scientific parameters is processed. So to speak all the words that are never spoken in a conversation.
An immensely large, peacefully slumbering monster, which makes the present flow of information appear as a small trickle.
Exformation (originally spelled eksformation in Danish) is a term coined by Danish science writer Tor Nørretranders in his book The User Illusion published in English 1998. It is meant to mean explicitly discarded information. However, the term also has other meanings related to information, for instance « useful and relevant information » or a specific kind of information explosion.
