The two brothers and artists also collaborated on a performance (White Cube #2) held in October 2013, during the first edition of Cluj International Ceramics Biennale. For 27 hours, they realized different actions with clay following a strict schedule, inside a cubic construction of 3×3 meters, located in the city’s Central Park.
Dressed in tuxedos, the brothers played, slept, ate and washed their teeth inside the cube while visitors observed them from a tiny window. They performed, reading texts out loud, creating objects, singing, fighting, and interacting with the visitors. Every hour – with no exception, even during the cold night – the artists took a photo of themselves inside the cube, and uploaded it to the biennale’s Facebook page, creating an online archive of the event.
At the end of the event, the artists left the cube open, for people to observe and collect various pieces of clay. The artists examined the triangle time, space, and clay, in a quest to define these variables. They used this material because it connects, divides, restricts and inspires. On the walls of the cube visitors were left with this message: “Clay is gold.”
