Parasol unit presents Robert Montgomery’s POEM IN LIGHTS TO BE SCATTERED IN THE SQUARE MILE, 2017, the latest addition to the Parasolstice – Winter Light series and his first light poem to be commissioned by a public institution in London.


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.
