The work is centred on the artist setting traps for children, using various lures lain in order to exploit the curiosity, eating habits, or “voluptuousness” of the prey – in this case, the child. The work challenges the common view of the artist as moral, striving to shed light precisely on the artist's manipulative, malicious, criminal facet.
