Performance artist Noriko Sunayama's ``The World of Choking'' allows visitors to crawl into the giant crimson skirts worn by the artist and the contestants.The wearer of the dress finds herself vulnerable in a public space where an unspecified number of people come and go.Through the act of peeking into the intimate private space that extends beneath the skirt, this is a live installation that anticipates the kind of communication that can occur between the visitor and the artist, or between the visitor. "The Choking World" was first produced and exhibited at Art Tower Mito's "John Cage's Laurie Holly Over Circus" exhibition in 1995, and toured France the following year in 1996, and has since toured all over the world.
