Superflex: To Let

Work / Art

We love Superflex’s hand-painted, and powerful “To Let” signs for the Biennial

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.
