Robert Montgomery | The Struggle for the Voice of the City
A presentation by poet and artist Robert Montgomery at The Art Conference in July 2016.
An enigmatic – and occasionally illegal – sculptor and poet, creating site-specific installations from light and text. About Robert Montgomery: Robert Montgomery follows a tradition of conceptual art and stands out by bringing a poetic voice to the discourse of text art. Montgomery creates billboard poems, light pieces, fire poems, woodcuts and watercolors. He was the British artist selected for Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2012, the first biennale in India. Montgomery has had solo exhibitions at venues in Europe and in Asia, including major outdoor light installations on the site of the old US Air Force base at Tempelhof. The first monograph of his work was published by Distanz, Berlin in 2015.
