Thevideo installation awarded on the13th Prêmio Cultura Inglesa Festival in 2009, Disque M para matar[Dial M for Murder](2009), by the duo Leandro Lima and Gisela Motta, is composed of fragments of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 feature film, with Grace Kelly playing Margot.The artists have bought the rights to employ the famous sequence just before Margot’s murder attempt. In their version, Margot’s husband isn’t the one who makes the phone ring anymore. Now it is the exhibition visitor who, through his/her own mobile phone, makes the call. People will be able to become an accomplice by calling the black phone in the screen to wake up the beautiful Grace Kelly. Disque M para matar [Dial M for Murder] by Lima and Motta is licenced by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. and was developed with the collaboration of Superuber.
