HR GigerBeauty calls for a beast at her side: As no other artist, Giger bridges the gap between sensual erotic attraction and technological horror (Mueller-Ebeling)

When bound androgynous beauties, aliens and androids, and biomechanical creatures come to your mind you will certainly think of the visionary art of the Swiss artist HR Giger. He gave form to apocalyptic scenarios. Now, Nachtschatten Verlag has published an illustrated book of Stanislav Grof, psychiatrist and pioneer of research into the use of non-ordinary states of consciousness states on Giger’s work. The societal relevance not be discounted and inherent to the initially terrifying scenarios is topic of the essays by Dr. Stanislav Grof in HR Giger and the Zeitgeist of the Twentieth Century. The bilingual book discusses the relationship between visionary art and the darkest recesses of the human psyche disclosed by modern consciousness research.
