Arnaud Pérennès, musician and visual artist, uses a variety of media ranging from video to live multimedia performance.Since 1996, he has been working on the concept of 'out-takes' or failures of reason, opening the way to another dimensionin which thought is always structured around a kind of immanent, unreachable 'otherness'. His work is expressed through drawing, which he sees as a symbol of "the hand which we use to draw and guide machines; and which, by its actions, always commits the whole of the rest of our body". As a multimedia author, Arnaud Pérennès also takes part invarious contemporary dance projects. Thesepartnerships include the multimedia presentation "No man no chicken" with theKassen K dance company in 2002 and "Solo for Katja", a choreography designed forKatja Fleig by Osman Khelili in 2005.• "Local Heros", Art et Essai gallery, Rennes 2 University (Installation)• L’Engage gallery, Rennes, "search", 1999• Jean-François Meyer gallery, Marseille, 1999• L'Engage gallery, Rennes, 1999• Le dessin autrement ('drawing differently') May 2000http://www.imagerie-lannion.com/archives/dessin_autrement_00.htm• Electro-happening electronic art station, March 2001 (audio-video mix)Awa, live, 25 min• Paroles d’internautes ('web-surfers' words'), Art-Rock festival, May 2002.
