Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I'm leaving

Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.
