Robert Montgomery’s weird text billboards in Istanbul


Scottish/British Montgomery is the associate publisher of Dazed & Confused and also a conceptual artist. He shows his poetry in public space, similar to ads. Some of his recent works have been shown throughout the city of Istanbul as part of the 12th Istanbul Biennial.

His thoughts about the reception of his work by the public:

“They know its not advertising, and its not graffiti either and they do not need an art history knowledge to read it. I’m super-interested in the ordinary person at the bus stop getting on the bus to their job everyday and suddenly seeing this weird text. I’m interested in reaching those people. They are my primary audience.”
