Performance art by Rallito X rests upon a plethora of social issues, as it delves deeper into the plane of behavioral studies. Through utilization of ridiculousness, strong symbolism or known marketing tools the artist addresses some of the burning issues, which affect the [western] world today. Immigration, superficiality, politics, power and inequality are brought to life in a seemingly innocent interplay with the public, emphasizing a singularly interactive note of his style. Observers become direct participants in the performance, while their reactions and experiences evolve into the integral part of the piece.

Rallito X is not afraid to tear down the pleasant facades and put people on the spot. An ordinary person can find themselves literally walking across other humans only because they are labeled as “immigrants”, or taking a selfie with a senseless chicken-faced man. What surfaces as sheer human nature, all the adopted behavioral guidelines are cast away in an instant. Still, spirits are stirred up and daily routines are brought into question, as is the dominant, “normal”, way of thinking.

The focus of Rallito X’s artistic action is exposure of our firmly controlled societies. Starting from the premise that we are all coerced to abide the laws of our societies, the artist singles out control as the supreme opponent to the true freedom – the chaos. Chaos is the subversive frequency at which Rallito X willfully vibrates, aiming to inspire a confused movement as it spreads across the globe, seeing confusion of the mind as the fundamental route to freedom.

I love Graffiti interview (eng)
May, 2015
Kein Graffiti, aber auch kein klassisches Street Art: der in Berlin lebende Künstler RALLITOX fällt mit grossen Murals und ausgefallen Aktionen auf. Kürzlich mit seinem „human sticker“-Projekt, bei dem wir vor Ort waren und ein paar Fotos mitgebracht haben. Anbei noch ein kurzes Interview (auf englisch).

Hey Rallitox, can you introduce yourself?
My name is Rallitox, Im an artist from Barcelona living in Berlin since four years.
What is your usual medium you work with and why?
My work is more connected with concepts like manipulation of the human minds and the possibility of using street art to create some kind of movement that goes a bit further than just finding a good gallery or selling more. A movement connected with the no sense, absurd, chaos and the use of our thoughts as an artistic material…. All the visual mediums that can help me to spread this ideas are good for me.
What is the performance with the taped person about?
Is a serie connected with other preview works i have done before with chickens. This kind of work is not new. Im not discovering anything. Im just trying to develop the stickers and make a dissociated connection with something so different as the human beings are. Im so interested in breaking mental patterns and when the people sees this kind of work, they don’t understand why someone is being taped on a wall. For me this mental confusion is the real artwork.

Why are there always dicks in yr pictures?
Most of the people think that is related with some kind of sexual obsession, but for me is an icon that reflect perfectly the human state of mind. The hypocrisy towards a human part of the body that is considered ugly and tasteless even when more or less half of the humanity have one between their legs… In the other hand, drawing and working with dicks gives me a lot of trouble in terms of selling my art and close me so many doors in the mainstream street art scene where this ¨bad taste¨ is normally not so good represented, with the exception of some more open minded blogs or magazines. So at the end putting dicks in my art is one of the best filters I can have.
Any future plans?
I want to develop this serie and to keep creating more and more artistic confusion.

Rallitoxart. Chicken in my face test. London 2015.
At the same time I take it as a personal experience where I can see how I feel when nobody understand what Im doing.
This piece can be reproduced by everyone. I would love to see what would happen if so many of people would start to do actions like this.
For me it was like a meditation. I could only see my feet and there was noise all around me. In New York was also so intense but not as much as in London, probably cause this time I walked throw more crowded places.
Location. Campden and Bricklane. London 2015
Material: Chicken, Duct tape, Gopro. Video camera.
Duration: 2 hours.
Thanks to Mart and Esmeralda Puerto.
The next city will be Berlin.
