MONEY IS A SUPERSTITION will be the first fire poem by Robert Montgomery to be shown in LONDON. His fire poems lie somewhere between performance, happening and a ritualistic ceremony, taking inspiration from ancient Celtic fire celebrations referencing the Beltane fire rituals, repositioned in a contemporary art context.

“To encounter the work of Robert Montgomery is to make a tender encounter whose tenderness is enhanced by the public, communal quality of his work. To encounter his work is to have your body filled with a sad thunder and your head filled with a sad light. He is a complete artist and works in language, light, paper, space. He engages completely with the urban world with a translucent poetry. His work arrives at us through a kind of lucid social violence. No one has blended language, form and light in such a direct way.”
