Text auf English
For lack of a better word, there is a profoundly magical moment in the works of Robert Montgomery: In the middle of the street, we might come across his words and realise that someone is speaking with us – through an anonymous poem between advertising billboards or as an unidentified page in a magazine, or a light installation illuminating the night. But while introducing poetry as sparkles of beauty into the public realm, presenting words as living part of our environment, Robert’s words and works have a tendency to linger in our memory for a long time as they slowly unfold. His poems are an archive of moments that poignantly capture the way it feels to live at this moment in time. They articulate, reprehend and simultaneously celebrate our shared experience of modern life. Echoes of Voices in the High Towers is the first comprehensive publication of Robert Montgomery’s work. Referencing the scale of his public interventions, all images are presented in full colour in a momentous A2 format, folding out to A1.
