For the past fifteen years, Pascale Montandon‑Jodorowsky and Alejandro Jodorowsky have been creating a four‑handed pictorial work, like a “spiritual child”, whose artist’s name is the fusion of their respective first names, pascALEjandro. This magical creative core is the product of their love and artistic union. It shares a passionate and human conception of love and life.

Born in 1972 in Paris, Pascale Montandon‑Jodorowsky is a painter, photographer, costume designer and stage designer.
Born in 1929 in Tocopilla, Chile, Alejandro Jodorowsky is a filmmaker, poet, comic book writer and creator of psychomagic art.
Exhibited in many museums around the world, pascALEjandro has created the colors of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s films: La Danza de la Realidad, Poesía Sin Fin and Psychomagie, un art pour guérir.

A screening of Psychomagie, un art pour guérir is scheduled for next September at the Centre Pompidou‑Metz, accompanied by an act of social psychomagic proposed to the public by Alejandro Jodorowsky.
