Touring internationally since 2008, “Play Me, I’m Yours” is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over two million people worldwide – more than 600 pianos have already been installed in cities across the globe, from New York to Sydney, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, outside galleries and markets and even on bridges and ferries, the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain 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 (July, 2012) happening in Toronto and Salem, Oregon and will be taking place in Stratford, Ontario from 1-19 August 2012. It will also be visiting Toowoomba & Perth in Australia, Hangzhou in China and Cambridge in the UK later this year.
