Dazed publisher by day, urban poet by night Robert Montgomery's verses have always sat well on the streets of London, with his interventionist, interpretative installations cropping up unannounced on ad spaces across the city. Influenced by Guy Debord's avant-garde art movement situationism, Montgomery's work focuses on the alienating after-shock of Capitalism. Now in this video, directed by Remi Ferrante and Florence Leoni with styling by Each X Other – a collaborative, unisex brand where art meets fashion, the lens pans out over urban skylines to the tune of Montgomery's "The City":
“THE CITY IS WILDER THAN YOU THINK AND KINDER THAN YOU THINK. IT IS A VALLEY AND YOU ARE A HORSE IN IT. IT IS A HOUSE AND YOU ARE A CHILD IN IT. SAFE AND WARM HERE IN THE FIRE OF EACH OTHER” – Robert Montgomery
Starring Alice Aufray, Robert Montgomery and Emma Champtaloup.
