Vital X: Kissing Project Chicago 1999-2000, video.

Vital X: Kissing Project is a video documentation of an ongoing project in which the artist asks strangers to kiss her passionately. Suzuki says she marks foreign cityscapes with intimate kisses in much the same way a dog marks its territory with urination. Using her body as a medium of experimentation and as a battlefield, Suzuki explores the blatant exploitation of the human body and sexuality in our culture.
