76 Grand Street, New York

In Inside Track, Momoyo Torimitsu considered competition, especially business competition, as an essential part of the New York experience. Her three robots and the accompanying video transposed psychological competition to a physical contest among the American, European and Asian businessmen. The three robots are astonishingly life-like, capturing the pose of businessmen determined to win. In addition to the crawling robots and the video of the corporate battle, the artist captured formal photographic portraits of the businessmen, in the style of a corporate annual report.
Concurrent with the Deitch Projects exhibition, Torimitsu presented an installation at the Swiss Institute, 495 Broadway, with an army of crawling mini-businessmen, the size of action toys, racing against each other across borders.
