Prick is about pleasure and pain and the fragility of relationships (especially sexual). It lures the viewer in with its physical beauty, bright, shiny, and existing in an impossibly precarious place, and then exudes a warning that its core structure is composed of dangerous elements and its core existence is tenuous at best. These are constructed completely of straight pins held together by their interaction, which heightens the precariousness of the gallery experience.
