Description

KUNIKLO is a collective of four members, formed in 2015.  We curate our live/work space on a small farm in the mountains of Trujillo Alto.  Our practice centers around themes of nature, queer sexuality, Puerto Rican culture, and investigations into literary/philosophical theory.  We mesh our particular specialties into a dense art practice, using painting, sculpting, puppetry, costume design, video art and music to create other-worldly, multidimensional environments.
