Wake Me Up When It's All Over by Issarezal Ismail



Wake Me Up When It’s All Over - Volume II
 
Burnout. Perhaps that is a word that may be able to represent the psycho-biological situation of the body, mind and emotions of all of us when faced with the Movement Control Order (MCO) for the third time. All soci0-economic activities came to a halt after for some time it had been going on even with full vigilance and under strict rules. 
 
The works in this series are inspired from my personal experience in Seri Iskandar, Perak during the MCO 3.0 period. As a result of sitting at home for too long, every morning as early as 8:00 I would wake up and drive to a supermarket whose location is close to my house. The purpose of that journey is that I can release fatigue by enjoying the environment outside my residence. 
 
Although only for a moment, I observed and enjoyed every single element of the round trip. Unsurprisingly, the result of my experiences often end up evoking my memories of various events, happenings or stories from the past that are so meaningful to myself and all of which I re-composed through all the works from this series. 
 
The combination of subjects which is sleeping / resting figure and everyday objects are composed to represent situations of exhaustion that are diverted to evoke memories of past experience that I often forget, especially when life situation take place without interruption; an act of activating the freedom of imaginative mind when all other things are so tightly controlled, closed and regulated that it tend to be exhausting.
