“Duties” consist of two parts: a seemingly endless list of tasks, compiled of the authors private lists, as well as some of their friends, slowly floating over the screen, and a two-channel video, where two women are performing inexplicable actions with a self-imposed meaning and a corresponding gravity.
“Duties” is a humoristic essay on the inexhaustibility of human ideas: on how the messy collection of little tasks comprehensibly and often without the necessary selection conquer our time, energy and perhaps even our inner balance, form the outlines of our choices.
