"A.lter S.essio was founded by Fabrice Planquette in 1998. FP occasionally invites different artists to work with him on projects in any fields of art. He sets the rhythm and motion, and each artist brings along his or her own language, sensitivity and perspectives. The work moves forwards intuitively but can also jump from one idea to another. Ideas evolve, and expression is free-floating. Different modules see the light of day : acta, 0+1, consilium miscere, insula-insulae, etc, each having its own specificity and evolving independently within a given theme. The expression is often repetitive, be it scenic, corporal, pictorial, tonal or textual. However, the modules are solely a way of setting out the work and are not necessarily a means to an end. They must not be perceived as a constraint but as a form of open expression in which each part exists as a whole without restraining a chronological presentation..."
