Artist's Poignant Poetry Displayed As Striking, Glowing Typographic Signs

Scottish artist Robert Montgomery showcases his poignant poetry as illuminated signs, billboards and as ‘fire poems’ in public spaces.

Currently exhibiting at Istanbul-based cultural platform and gallery INSTANBUL'74, Montgomery's first solo show in Turkey showcases the different techniques and media that he uses for his striking poetry work.

Apart from documenting his ‘fire poem’ performances, the exhibition also highlights his lesser known mediums such as watercolor paintings and wood engravings. Through his work, Montgomery attempts to bring the fragile and private nature of poetry into the light of the public realm.

Head over to the gallery website for more information.
