Piano at the Main Station
Since 2008, “Play Me, I’m Yours” is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over three million people worldwide – more than 800 pianos have already been installed in 35 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, 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 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. In Prague the project was appropriated by Ondřej Kobza and there are already several pianos in public spaces. This particulary one is in the hall of Main or Wilson Railway station.
