Polaroids contains a selection of never before published photographs from the personal archives of the Swiss artist H.R.Giger. Given the ephemeral nature of the Polaroid format, these are snapshots that the artist used as references for his own work as well as for process and work documentation. He personalized many of the Polaroids by scratching, painting, and drawing over the main motifs in the image in a surreal and vivid style. Casual and light in their approach, the photographs intimate sex, death, pop, and his inscrutable sense of humor. They provide a view into a corner of Giger’s world that until now had remained largely overlooked.

Retrospective: more than 150 artworks, spanning 20 years in the career of the world's most renowned artist of the fantastical and the surreal. Carefully rendered reproductions of Giger's best paintings are accompanied by his own commentary.
