Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over eight million people worldwide – more than 1,400 pianos have already been installed in 50 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
Play Me I’m Yours is currently taking place in Hong Kong until end of December 2015, and although Canary Wharf has officially finished, six of the original 15 street pianos are still available to play! We are also delighted to announce that we already have three cities signed up for 2016: Mesa, Arizona from the end of February to the beginning of April, Singapore in March, and for the second year running Florence, South Carolina in April. Plus we are currently working with a number of other potential partners for 2016, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...
