Sara Skorgan Teigen

Oslo, NO

Poetic and fragmented, Sara Skorgan Teigen’s (b. 1984, Norway) mixed-media work returns to the tradition of the sketchbook. Photographs of stony, watery landscapes are illustrated by sketches, skeins of words and collage. She denotes an analogy of her sources of inspiration;hidden universes in the shape of microorganisms, rocks, minerals or emotions unfurl on the textured pages. Organic abstraction provides the means of charting our relationship with outer and inner worlds, exposing intangible links with our natural environments and mental being. Referring to her practice as an “unfinished process”, Skorgan Teigen often returns to the same negatives, polaroids and photograms which she utilises as both a palette and an archive.
