Who I Am Tomorrow, 2018, Lique Schoot, 5min 30sec

‘While making my daily photograph, I realize that I will never know who I am tomorrow’

The Slideshow Movie ‘Who Am I Tomorrow’ shows 100 Self-portraits from the LS diaries of Lique Schoot, made between 2005 and 2018. The photographs in the visual diary record her existence in one frame a day. They are made with an analogue compact camera, always at arms-length and titled by date (year – month – day). Daily moments are shown in a vulnerable and honest way.

Lique Schoot (NL, 1969) was born in Arnhem-NL, the city where she currently lives and works. She received her Bachelor Degree from ArtEZ (Academy of Visual Arts, NL) in 1997.

Lique 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 relevant issues; such as identity and gender.

The starting point for her work consists in the LS diaries, a visual diary in progress, started in 2003. The archive contains more than five thousand pictures showing daily moments of Lique at arm’s length. Every day one photo is taken with an analogue camera and titled by date (year, month, and day).

The LS data shows her entire, growing œuvre, encompassing painting, photography, objects, installations, video, site-specific, and digital art. Her work explores the dual nature of identity as simultaneously the perpetual reinvention of the self and an equally willful projection of the other. Common emotions and great themes emerge from the quiet simplicity and persistence of her imagery.

After her graduation in painting, photography and objects, her work was nominated and awarded several times, in- and outside the Netherlands. Since then Lique’s work has been featured in exhibitions in museums including the Valkhof Museum, the Bommel van Dam Museum, the Gorcums Museum and CODA Museum in the Netherlands; Koehnline Museum of Art and Phoenix Art Museum in the USA; FeliXart Museum, Be-Part, Museum SONS in Belgium and Museum Kurhaus Kleve in Germany.
Her work has also been exhibited in galleries and art fairs around the world including Chicago, New York, Düsseldorf, London, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.

Works are included in museum collections in- and outside the Netherlands.

In 2016 she received a Working Grant for Established Artists from the Mondriaan Fund.
