For two weeks Kurt Hollander lived and documented Motel Kiss Me, the largest and most popular love motel in Cali, Colombia.

With 180 themed rooms, each representing different cities and cultures from around the world with paintings, objects, and installations, the motel feels more like a folk art museum than a pleasure palace. For this stage of the project, Kurt invited twelve women from Cali (a theater actress, a contemporary dancer, a rugby player, a woman who works at the local zoo, a transvestite, etc.) to choose a theme room, dress up as wish and pose as if they were in the motel with a lover.

The exhibition plays with the relationship between advertising and art, between the erotic and the exotic, and between the fantasy and the reality of sex in Cali.
