The Block MGG 28″


Manufactured by Unicol Engineering in 2014, The Block monitor is a hybrid which splices formal qualities of both the Hantarex MGG and Sony ProFeel models. The Block monitor incorporates the grip-bar from the Sony ProFeel model into the standard geometry of a 28″ Hantarex MGG. The CRT monitors used in this instance were end of life and repurposed by The Block, initially for the two-person exhibition staged at CHELSEA space with Charlotte Prodger in 2014.
