In Yes, Please! visitors are guided, room by room, through new fantasy worlds through a menu of 333 erotic stories, from 66 subcategories. Through veils of shame, under soft carpets and in a somewhat kinky kitchen, visitors discover the versatility of the human imagination. During the exhibition, Bolleke will be in the garden of Marres, where more interviews will be held on registration.
In the past two years, Company New Heroes has conducted research into the erotic fantasies of more than 300 Dutch and Flemish people. Bolleke, a caravan equipped with audio equipment, visited various festivals to collect erotic fantasies. The collected stories were grouped under nine categories: Multiple people; Power, control, rough sex; Novelty, adventure and variety; Taboos & forbidden sex; Sharing partners & non-monogamy; Romance & passion; Erotic flexibility; Relive; Focus and Sensations. These also form the basis for the exhibition Yes, Please!, which can be experienced at Marres from March 8 to June 7, 2020.
