    Superflex: To Let

We love Superflex's hand-painted, and powerful "To Let" signs for the Biennial

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Upon visiting Liverpool, artistic group Superflex were struck by the enormous amount of To Let signs draped all over the buildings. In a city where constant regeneration is contrasted with a huge amount of available space and a lack of demand, the To Let signs have become a staple aesthetic of a city caught in quite a strange phase – Liverpool is balancing social difficulties with real cultural clout. Superflex’s hand-painted To-Let signs speak of hard-work in the city’s industrial history and of logos and letting agents’ signs that have become a part of day-to-day life. Shown in the fascinating space of the Cunard Building, one of the historic Three Graces of Liverpool, the works are given a spacious context in which to be rethought.
