Location #12 takes on an archetypal Hollywood scene as a red Cadillac with two passengers (the woman has been dressed and stylized to recall Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina) drives in front of a constructed painted background. The works in this large-format series of color photographs are provocative, playful and executed in rich saturated tones. The diverse range of imagined landscapes is intended to leave viewers wondering which taboo, stereotype or iconic image Jung will take on next.
