Hyper Mobility is the inaugural exhibition at TheArtpark, TheArsenale Miami, curated by Jenny Mannerheim and Philippe Combres.

Mobility is a timeless theme, which has found itself amplified in our current world where everybody is constantly on the move. Since the dawn of time, and even in order just to survive, man has travelled and migrated. Today, the means of transportation allow him to do it more and more quickly, all the while questioning this very frenzy. The miles seem to shrink while the questions are multiplied with regards to the damages done to nature, climate change, and the necessity to slow down. Mobility is an intrinsic part of humanity. If we take the concrete example of the car, this mobility, associated with the machine, has acquired an iconic status, and is sometimes a sign of its driver’s status.

Arielle Pytka is an American and French multi media artist. She resides between Los Angeles and Paris. Her artwork has appeared in multiple solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles, Miami, Paris, London, and Indonesia. Her exhibitions have featured a wide range of mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, video, and an automobile amongst others. She has worked professionally as a lighting and drum technician for touring bands in the United States, Europe, and Australia. Pytka has also worked as a motion picture cinematographer leading her to direct her own projects. Arielle now directs music videos and commercials. An avid surfer and sailor, she was a part of the Roxy/Quicksilver team and has completed three transatlantic crossings crewing on vintage and modern sailboats. Her sailing team has won the 2015 Panerai Transatlantic Classique, Les Voiles De Saint Tropez, 2008 Falmouth Pendennis Cup, Fife Regatta in Scotland, and many others. Arielle is now working out of her studio in Venice Beach, California and still actively works as race crew on several sailboats for various regattas.
