About the project Edit

Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by the British artist Luke Jerram, which involves the installation of pianos in various public locations of a city such as, in the street, gardens, parks, bridges, city squares, markets, etc. where they remain for two to three weeks. Often, these pianos are decorated by artists or the community. Residents and passers-by are invited by the simple phrase “Play Me, I’m Yours” to stop and play.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Play Me, I’m Yours unites the mediums of performance, street art, exhibition and concert, taking each of these individual mediums one step further. The mere presence of the imposing instruments, in the absence of their owner, compels people to stop.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Musical groups are spontaneously formed, whether they are made up of beginners or experts, amateurs or sometimes, professionals. Complete strangers often spontaneously improvise together or gathered observers may sing a refrain in unison. The presence of the piano stimulates exchanges among members of its host community and, following at the end of installation, the piano is often donated to a music school or a community centre.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The project itself is an artwork created by Luke Jerram who, to date, has installed over 400 pianos in more than 20 cities across the globe.
