Montgomery's site-specific work at Parasol unit, constructed in wood, metal and LED lights, responds to the location and surrounding neighbourhood, illuminating aspects unique to the area of Shoreditch and its history. Known for his rhythmic texts pasted across posters on billboards and hoardings around East London, and for his dramatic light pieces and fire poems displayed throughout the world, Scottish artist Robert Montgomery brings a poetic voice to the discourse on Text Art.
