Who is the artist HR Giger? What kind of person is behind such terrifying and disturbing yet aesthetic forms and beings? He feels at home in places we would flee from and lives his life among the very things we fear. He brings to the surface everything we try to suppress. Throughout his life, HR Giger had inhabited the world of the uncanny, a dark universe on the brink of many an abyss. He did not create this world because he held it dear, but rather because he had no other option. It was the only way this amiable, modest and humorous man was able to keep his fears in check. Giger charted our nightmares, drafted maps of our subconscious and moulded our primal fears.
