For the Liverpool Biennial 2012 SUPERFLEX created a new work –Liverpool To Let.


Liverpool To Let is an installation comprising 46 different hand-painted banners, replicating as many “to let” signs disseminated across the city centre of Liverpool. These life-sized replicas have been crafted so as to perfectly mirror the original style, colours, composition and design of the real commercial adverts. At first the viewer can hardly notice any difference between these artefacts and their ink-jet printed industrial counterparts. The banners have been collectively painted by a team of volunteers and job-seekers.
