HR Giger in Vienna

Sadly, the most fascinating art exhibition which opened today isn't in London, but in Vienna. The Kunst Haus Wien presents a major retrospective of the most original artist of the 20th Century: Hans Ruedi Giger. He is best known for his Oscar-winning designs for Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), but this is a fraction of his output over the last 50 years. Due to the disturbing and erotic nature of many of his paintings - CLICK for an example - the exhibition isn't recommended for youngsters under the age of 14. If you're in Vienna on holiday or on business before 26 June, HR Giger - Dreams and Visions is a must (title link).
