Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940–2014) terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott's 'Alien'. Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers and tattoos have been influenced by his dark, intricate work. Behind the ivy-covered walls of his residence in Zurich, Switzerland, 'Dark Star' brings viewers into Giger's mysterious realm: from the first skull he was given by his father at age six, to macabre dinner parties, grisly souvenirs from the Alien set and reminiscences about model Li Tobler, Giger's one-time muse, whose suicide reverberates through his work.
Enshrined in a museum dedicated to his work, Giger's output includes sculpture, painting, drawing, film, architecture and commercial projects for musicians including Debbie Harry, Korn and the Dead Kennedys, integrating meticulous technique with a instantly-recognizable sensibility that has inspired generations of nightmares.
