Hello Photolithography.



So, I`m back as a student and love it madly.
This time not in photography, but learning about awesome graphic techniques at The National School of Arts in Oslo, Arts and Craft department, Graphics and drawing.
I am starting my second year diving into photolithography, eager to see what this medium can do.


Lithography stones are from the bottom of our oceans, from BEFORE the plates separated and created our continents.. just saying..

Solo and AIR in NW Gallery, Copenhagen, June 2019


So happy to exhibit in a gallery that is very special and dear to me, NW Gallery Copenhagen. The gallerist, Nina Worren, and I made an exhibition together in these rooms, and it has been a dream to be able to be here and work directly at the walls and among this amazing person. Nina was also the person who first showed me what to pictures could do together when she helped me with my application to my first photoschool Fatamorgana. Since then I have follower her footsteps in school choices and she has helped me getting in, and now I am grateful to call her one of my closest friends ;) All she does for the art-world is from the heart, and that is unique in these days. Very grateful to be in her presence.
In other words, lots of good vibrations happening in the gallery! ;)
So please come by while I will be here transforming the gallery into a sketchbook, from now until the opening the 09.06. Welcome!
Ps. pre opening 05.06 of you want to meet us and se how we work.

About the exhibition:
Interior Landscape with Sara Skorgan Teigen (NO) // A solo exhibition about the room as a sketch book. OPENING June 9th 14-18. Sara Skorgan Teigen's work is a meeting-point between her inner, emotional explorations and the outside world; the confluence between the metaphysical and the physical.

reGeneration 3, Now China!




reGeneration3, a selection of young artists of tomorrow from all the world is continuing its touring until 2020. After Mexico, England and Switzerland, it’s now in China!
Here is a short presentation video and text on the work exhibited, my first publication Fractal State of Being. Click here to see the video


“The artist’s book entitled Fractal State of Being is constructed as a poem that explores the inner stirrings of the human soul. Combining photographs, notes, and drawings, Sara Skorgan Teigen revisits the tradition of the sketchbook: ancillary works often relegated by art historians to the status of mere documents, these sorts of materials, in addition containing an artist’s sketches and preparatory drawings, amount to a more or less partial anthology of her annotations and sources of inspiration. Teigen then illustrates her own personal feelings — extremely abstract and fleeting, for most part — in the form of hybrid documents comprised primarily of photographs of stony and watery landscapes in which she “lays herself bare” in series of tableaux. Over these images she draws skeins of words, plant forms, and locks of hair, in both pencil and ink. Leitmotivs that recur on each double page, these organic- looking drawings also seem to resonate with the title of the project. From the Latin fractus, meaning “broken,” the term “fractal” designates an extremely indented geometrical object, in which a basic structure repeats itself endlessly at every scale. This reference to mathematics reinforces the fragmentary nature of Sara Skorgan Teigen’s work, already manifest in the choice of the sketchbook structure”.

Challenge, publication, KUNST magazine.



I got challenged to make an image with the title "Rituals" from the magazine KUNST for their next issue. Since the age of 14, I have been writing "morning pages" every morning. They have changed in form over the years, but they do the same thing: trashing useless noise that the pervious day and night carries, this ritual helps making space for the new day.

CPW,  Exhibition New York


Opening at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. TABULA RASA


artists: Anouk Ruithof, Sara Skorgan Teigen, & Sonja Thomsen
curated by Ariel Shanberg
on view: February 8 – March 30, 2014
opening reception: Saturday February 8, 2014 from 5-7pm
The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) is pleased to open its 2014 exhibition program with the group exhibition, Tabula Rasa. Curated by CPW’s Executive Director Ariel Shanberg, the exhibition will be on view from February 8 – March 30, 2014.
Tabula Rasa, which is Latin for ‘blank slate’, brings forth three dynamic visual artists whose explorations pull at the seams of photographic language. Anouk Kruithof, Sara Skorgan Teigen, and Sonja Thomsen represent a growing interest in forgoing the practice of injecting new images into the overflowing stream that subsumes us on a daily basis. Rather, through their site-specific photo-based installations, each expands on the language of memory, the veracity of photographic impression, and the infinite space held in between and around the photograph.
Through their practice, the artists in Tabula Rasa subvert the imposing and hegemonic nature of the traditional exhibition space directly engaging and subsuming its walls. In combining elements of audience engagement, the temporal, and site-specific spectacle, they also cumulatively transcend the borders of what is a knowingly arcane object – the photographic print – exploring the literal and figurative space in and around the photograph. The cavernous voids, which consistently appear in each of their photo-based installations, reveal the physical, emotional, and intellectual gaps within photography a terrain that ultimately serves as a mirror to our own projections...
