Launch — Echoes of Voices in the High Towers

Ti Pi Tin invites you to launch of Robert Montgomery’s Echoes of Voices in the High Towers pub­lished by mono.log on Novem­ber 29th 2012

The launch is fol­lowed by an even­ing of con­ver­sa­tion with artist Robert Mont­gomery and pub­lish­er Kai von Rabenau of mono.kultur, who will be dis­cuss­ing Echoes of Voices in the High Towers, the first com­pre­hens­ive and large scale pub­lic­a­tion of Montgomery’s work and it is the debut of mono.log aswell.

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.”

Robert Mont­gomery will also be sign­ing cop­ies of his new book, which will be for sale at a spe­cial launch price for the night.
