'Rem phase', 2018. Adhesive vinyl on forex panels. Milan, Italy
Devices such as distortion and an interplay between fact and fiction crop up quite frequently in Carlo Galli's productions. In Rem phase (2018), the Italian artist delves into the complexity of human brain activity, stopping to examine so-called REM sleep and some of its most common traits, such as spasms and waking states. Galli places a soldier at the centre of his composition, thus generating a parallel between the armed forces and their perpetual obedience, as well as dealing with secondary themes such as submission, discipline and the body spirit.
