AlaïaAzzedine Alaïa is pleased to present the first large-scale exhibition devoted to pascALEjandro, Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky and Alejandro Jodorowsky’s collaborative creation. Born from the love between these two persons, their «spiritual child», pascALEjandro, is a painterly endeavor : Alejandro Jodorowsky - filmmaker, poet, author of comic books, the great figure of psychomagic - traces the lines, and lays out the symbols, marking the masculine element; the image is then filled with colors by Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky - painter, costume and stage designer.

This magical core of creation, which unites the names of the spouses with the three letters they share, represents a conception of love and life, passionate and humane. This conception was notably manifested in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s two recent films, La Danza de la Realidad (2013) and Poesía Sin Fin (2016); pascALEjandro played a key role in both them by conceiving their colors, while Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky designed the costumes. Images of those two films are projected in the exhibition.
