No artist has captured the eroticism of death and the organic quality of machinery quite like HR Giger. New York's Lomex gallery (86 Walker St # 3, New York, NY 10013) is featuring work from the legendary artist.

On display are photographs from the photoshoot for Debbie Harry's 1981 album KooKoo, concept art for Poltergeist II, and the ornate Harkonnen chair designed for the aborted Alejandro Jodorowsky version of Dune.

Giger's shoot with Debbie Harry also graced the cover of the December 1981 issue of Heavy Metal.
