ABOUT THE EXHIBTION DEUTSCHES FILMMUSEUM
FRANKFURT AM MAIN, BEGINNING JANUARY 21, 2009

The exhibition presents, for the first time worldwide, a comprehensive selection of the film-related works of HR Giger. The artist himself is closely involved in its planning. In addition to numerous sketches and designs, the show also includes sculptures such as “Humanoid” from SWISSMADE and one of the “Harkonnen” chairs that Giger designed for DUNE. Central areas of the show are dedicated to ALIEN, ALIEN3, POLTERGEIST II, and SPECIES. The exhibition displays the most important design blueprints of the film creatures, which Giger generally executed in pencil, ink, and acrylic. These will be supplemented with further works by Giger which illustrate the genesis of central motives, in particular of the “Biomechanoids”. Other items in the exhibition document how the ideas were implemented during the production of the film:
