Signe Fuglesteg Luksengard (1990) is a visual storyteller working in the intersection between fact and fiction. She grew up in a small village close to the mountains of southern Norway, but lives and works in Oslo.

Today she works with long-time personal projects as well as work for magazines, newspapers, artists and others. In her personal works she is curious on the issue of home and the sense of belonging.
