Robert Montgomery who was featured on here earlier for the Istanbul Biennale shows his largest billboard project in Berlin right now.

Montgomery’s billboards are poetic pieces of text and always using the strong contrasts of a white letters on a black background. He captures spots that are usually occupied by advertising, trying to create a surprising artistic situation.

In total, the project Echoes of Voices in the High Towers, organized by Neue Berliner Räume, will display 23 billboards, two illuminated poem sculptures as well as artistic interventions in several print publications like EXBERLINER, Sleek, Päng!, Um[laut] and others, as well as an exhibition of his drawings.

Echoes of Voices in the High Towers runs until October 2012.

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.”
