Description - PascALEjandro by Donatien Grau
The first monograph devoted to the work of PascALEjandro, an artist's collective composed of the painter, costume and set-designer and photographer Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky and the poet, writer, filmmaker, comic book writer, director and playwright Alejandro Jodorowsky.
This book primarily catalogues the pair's illustration work, Alejandro Jodorowsky having provided the lines and Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky the colour. The vibrant universe they create brims with ancestral myths, contemporary tales and metaphysical reflections on life, and expresses the spiritual, philosophical and artistic soul of their relationship. It is a world peopled by angels, clowns, mystical lovers, pierrots, dream beings and characters from the real world. The colours are true-to-life but sometimes sharper and brighter, sometimes softer and calmer, honing our senses. Apart from cataloguing the illustrations of an entity that its creators call their 'symbolic child', the book also represents a manifesto proclaiming a more vivid and enchanted vision of the world, love and life.
PascALEjandro's work has also extended to film and Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky provided the colour for Alejandro Jodorowsky's recent movies, The Dance of Reality and Endless Poetry. Along with movie stills, there are also interviews with PascALEjandro by Klaus Biesenbach (chief curator, The Museum of Modern Art, New York) and Hans Ulrich Obrist (artistic director, Serpentine Galleries, London), and essays on the poetry, cinema, art and philosophy of their work by Adonis, Diego Moldes, Edgar Morin, Maria Ines Rodriguez, Philippe Rouyer, Diana Widmaier Picasso and Olivier Zahm.
