Chelsea Space, London
Markets was an exhibition comprising a physical framework of renewed and re-designed CRT monitors by The Block, and a multi-channel video and sound installation by Charlotte Prodger at Chelsea space, London. The Block was set up in 2007 by Matthew Fitts with the primary purpose of acquiring and refurbishing obsolete Hantarex and Sony Cube video monitors. This activity is based around an interest in their formal qualities, rapid obsolescence and widespread use among artists. For this exhibition, The Block has designed and produced a new hybrid monitor which splices formal qualities of both the Hantarex and Sony models.
