MOCA’s Lobby Gallery
Natalia Benedetti’s video “An Immaculate Murder” juxtaposes the tranquil images of a cat with an audio track describing the methodology for a perfect murder. The audio segment is cut from Alfred Hitchcock’s film “Rope.” “An Immaculate Murder” explores the complexities between victim and aggressor; the viewer is not sure whether the cat is a symbol of guilt or innocence. Benedetti’s work was included in the MOCA exhibitions, “Making Art in Miami: Travels in Hyperreality”, 2000 and “The House at MOCA” in 2001. Her film, “Let’s Get Lost”, was projected on the museum’s art court wall in December 2001.
