A Life Story in Pictures
‘The self-portraits of Lique Schoot are visual autobiographical statements that reflect current times.’
Lique Schoot is a multidisciplinary artist. She works in the tradition of conceptual art. Since her graduation, she has used the self-portrait as a vehicle for exploring the nature of existence. Her work shows identity, daily life, general emotions, and deals with the major themes of life.
The starting point of her work consists in the LS diaries, a visual diary of more than 6000 daily made self-portraits, begun in October of 2003. Each work is titled by date (y-m-d).
