"Creators of Legends – Homage to HR Giger" exhibition at the Horror Festival

Mundo Alien

2019.07.18

Municipal Library Activities Room (San Jerónimo) / October 26 – November 10

Curators: Carlos Arenas and César Oropeza

The designs of the Swiss artist HR Giger caused a revolution in the look of science fiction and horror movies with his collaboration on Alien (1979). However, as we saw in the extensive retrospective dedicated to him in San Sebastian's Kubo-Kutxa Gallery in 2019, his work is much more than Alien, extending to numerous disciplines including painting, sculpture, illustration as well as furniture and architectural design. Giger developed a striking creative universe by means of images packed with biomechanical monsters, satanic gods and gothic landscapes which have unquestionably exercised enormous influence among emerging artists from all parts.

This exhibition is, without a doubt, the most complete and extensive recognition ever made of the life and professional career of Paul Naschy (Jacinto Molina Álvarez, 1934-2009). The event will also feature, thanks to the kind support of his widow, Elvira Primavera, and of his sons, Sergio and Bruno, a loan made by the family including the personal archive of the figure receiving the tribute, meaning that you will be able to enjoy materials never exhibited before, from the incredibly beautiful scrapbooks to his actual office desk.

"Folk Horror" cycle in the programme of this year’s Horror Film Festival

Yo anduve con un zombie

2019.07.18

The qualification of folk horror applied to cinema reflects the influence in their plots of the ancestral folkloric heritage of different cultures. In recent years, films like Troll Hunter (2010), The Witch (2015), Border (2018) and the Basque movie Errementari (2017) bear witness to the heyday of this trend which blossomed in the British Isles of the 60s and 70s.
