Hypercomf is a multidisciplinary, conceptual design identity, materialized as a fictitious company profile. Founded in 2017 by artists Ioannis Koliopoulos and Paola Palavidi and based out of Greece, Hypercomf produces site- and time-specific projects. Focused on collaborations with other artists, their main research themes are organic and digital networks and information, man-machine duality, comfort and discomfort. This research results in films, audiovisual installations, costumes, tapestries, multi-functional wearables, and discomforting soft seating spaces.
Hypercomf is a utopian business and production model evolving through a developing, impromptu narrative, created to investigate the state of self-branding and living the act of persuasion, using humor and all the necessary qualities to accommodate and bewilder.
Hypercomf’s residency is made possible with support of Outset Contemporary Art Fund (Greece).
