One of the most intimate experiences we share as humans is also the simplest, sitting down on the couch together and sharing time over coffee and cake. It’s a time where we can nourish, support, and enjoy time with each other, a time that is cherished by many families all around the world.

But not everyone gets to share this same level of love and support. The world is currently experiencing the 6th mass extinction. More and more beautiful creatures are being pushed towards the threat of extinction and the reasons can always be linked back to us, humans. We have moulded the earth to suit our needs, indifferent to the effects on the other living creatures who share our planet.

This public sculpture experience is an invitation to join the best party in the world. Expertly crafted in bronze, the couch is ready and the animals are already partying, all that is left is for the public to take their seats.

Take a seat at ‘The Wild Couch Party’ unveiled by Gillie and Marc on Fosun Plaza on June 9th!
