ARTWORK | SHARIETA BERGHUIS | WAMENA MUMMY
Sharieta Berghuis (1990) is an artist based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. After graduating in 2013 from HKU (University of the Arts Utrecht), Sharieta Berghuis was the winner of the Hel Ved Creative Call, setting the stage for her as a young talent. Since then she has had various exhibitions at diverse art fairs in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and was selected for the Dutch BankGiro Loterij Talent Collection of the Unseen Photo Fair 2014.
In her series “Inpatensa” Sharieta translates her inner quest for a sense of familiarity. With the use of natural light, well-selected environments and an innovative use of props she explores how being raised abroad influences the concept of “home.”
This coming year, Sharieta will be working on the second phase of this project. In this new adventure she will return “home” to the places in Indonesia where she lived as a child, to discover what remains there for her.
Sharieta Berghuis is also currently working together with another photographer under the name SILVER PAPER.
