Coco Rico's Carnivalesque Revolution
Since 2004 Coco Rico has engaged an ongoing presidential campaign that is typified by its ambivalence for moderate political platforms in democratic bids for state power. Her anarchist platform seeks to develop a transpecies, transhistorical, transnational, transborder worlding that articulates the basis for a just society. Coco Rico’s aim as an artist is to expose systemic injustices and to break the constricting rules of propriety through a summoning of the carnivalesque within public spaces.
Coco Rico’s actions, interventions and performances have taken place in various settings including: Christie’s Auction House, Galería Animal de Chile, Avda. Pdte. Masaryk, Mexico, Beijing University, Western Front Society, among others.
