We can’t find our piano

Priestley, Amber

About the work

 Since I heard Billy Williams’ song ‘When Father Papered the Parlour’, I’ve loved it. One of my passions is for picking up objects from the past and showing them from a different perspective, and I have done this in ‘We can’t find our piano’. I have taken elements from the music hall song, but I have displayed them as curios in amongst the objects which can be found in my own mind.

This piece was commissioned by Rolf Hind in 2015 for CoMA and is designed to be inclusive of everyone.

Every performance has the chance to be different. Enjoy!
