Artist Statement

‘Castaway On The Moon’, as the title and story essence itself inspired by a Korean movie directed by Lee Hae-Jun, portrays Nik’s self-figured trapped in his house back in Kelantan during movement control order during Covid19 virus outbreak. When he went back to his hometown in Kuala Krai, Kelantan; at first he has no idea that the situation will be getting worse for Malaysia, so he went back one week before Malaysia is declaring the lockdown (Movement Control Order). His initial plan going back to Kelantan was crossing Kelantan – Yala (Thailand) border for a road trip with the family. He got his passport renewed, baggage packed and brought back limited essentials only for the trip. Suddenly, everything turned upside down, all his plans canceled, and he stays trapped in Kelantan without knowing when the situation will become better because the lockdown period is still extending. His movement only in the house during the isolation, like walking back and around on the moon, circulating the same place with almost no art supplies at all except small 4 acrylics tubes, broken brushes and a wasted acrylic white light globe found in the old store. But the artist’s view towards the world must be bigger even the artist staying in a confined space. So he painted fisheye lens view on the globe to make his house space appears bigger. Using an imaginary virus-like character, he painted the creature screaming in suffer, that when everybody is cooperating for staying at home during the outbreak, we did beat the virus for not spreading and ends this lockdown for once and for all.
