pascALEjandro is the artistic fusion of Pascale and Alejandro Jodorowsky, the « perfect alchemical androgynous », a combination of the best of femininity and masculinity. As close as it may sound to Barjavel’s The Ice People, the concept has given birth to a prolific artistic collaboration, of which the backstage is being unveiled. There is no way around their special wedding announcement that summarizes in itself the beauty and megalomania of the project.

To love is to create something together

Images (Happy End, La veuve, Sous le sable…) and film excerpts (Poesìa sin Fin, La Danza de la Realidad) are as fascinating on a psychoanalytical level as they are strong and moving, one of Jodorowsky’s trademarks. The feminine figure is both caring and threatening by turns, like in Picasso’s work, whereas man oscillates between the cherish child and the hunted animal. Entire parts of the exhibition including Le poids du passé, Allegria !, Allegria !, Allegria ! break away like particules of Dune. 

It is not love that unites us, you and I were united before we were born
