About the Porsche 911 Edition
In her Timeless Machine series, Irene Kung creates a previously non-existent symbiosis between technological trailblazing and timeless art. Her interpretation of the new Porsche 911 is realized in six images. “My pictures should enchant people, inspire them to dream, and tell them stories. You should be able to switch off and let them take you to another level,” Kung says about her photographs. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that all of her artworks reveal fascinating new details with every look. In China and the USA, in the snow and in the desert, Irene Kung uses diverse locations around the world to spotlight the automobile’s timeless design in a characteristic yet subtle way. To her, the car’s sensual beauty is a key component. Her perception of this mysterious and fascinating vehicle is especially apparent in the piece, Dragon.
My pictures are narrative; they have that in common with paintings. They are like film scenes, and viewers can fill in the rest of the story for themselves.
