PascALEjandro is the first monograph devoted to the work of the eponymous artist’s collective composed of the director, poet, writer, comic-book writer and playwright Alejandro Jodorowsky (born 1929) and painter, costume and set-designer and photographer Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky (born 1972).
The work primarily catalogues the couple’s illustration work, in which Alejandro Jodorowsky provides the lines and Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky the color. The vibrant universe they create brims with ancestral myths, contemporary tales and metaphysical reflections on life; it is peopled by angels, clowns, mystical lovers and dream beings.
In addition to cataloguing their illustrations, the volume includes movie stills from the pair’s film work (they provided the color for Jodorowsky’s recent The Dance of Reality and Endless Poetry), as well as various essays and interviews with the artists by Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
