HR Giger in Vienna

The KunstHausWien is proud to present the first solo show of HR Giger in Vienna with more than 100 works of the famous Swiss surrealist.

HR Giger is recognized as one of the world’s foremost artists of Fantastic Realism. And I’m a long-time fan.

Giger’s third and most famous book „Necronomicon”, published in 1977, served as the visual inspiration for director Ridley Scott’s film „Alien”, Giger’s first film assignment, which earned him the 1980 Oscar for the Best Achievement in Visual Effects for his designs.

With countless exhibitions since 1966 HR Giger and his art have achieved world renown. The exhibition at KunstHausWien consists of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photos and photomontages as well as the famous Harkonnen furniture sculptures, co-curated by Stephan Stucki, Zurich.
