Two commissioned love letters, written by professional writers, are read and interpreted by a hired pair: a gigolo and an actress. Video is based on the motif of a love relationship reduced to purely formal aspects. The body of
the letter‘s text, discussions about romantic strategies and a recitation of the text—activities occurring in front of the camera—are related to the professions of the participating parties. Their meeting takes place within a predetermined framework, which serves to formalize and alienate the content on multiple levels.
Second version of the video from 2017 portraits just one of the protagonists – gigolo Oliver.
