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.
