HR Giger “Universe” Exhibition



Artifist Galerie is pleased to present in aticipation of the forthcoming movie “Prometheus” by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) a special exhibition in honor of  HR Giger, the Swiss artist famous for his Oscar-winning work on “Alien”.

Since Giger‘s involvement with the original Alien film, his style and artistic vision has left an indelible mark on the movie series, with both often being associated with each other. It could be said that his influence on the film is only second to that of the writer or director. So although Prometheus is a movie independent of the Alien series, but still a part of the same “universe”, it was natural that Giger‘s visual aesthetic was carried over. To that end, he was asked to submit some artwork for the new film.

The HR Giger “Universe” exhibition takes the form of a retrospective, showing many works of the artist. An area of around 100m2 will be dedicated to the exhibition, followed by several related events, such as large screen projection of unpublished documents and rarely seen materials.
