A Life in BTween is an animation by artist Charlie White. This video is part of his current exhibit at LACMAThe Sun and Other Stars: Katy Grannan and Charlie White. The exhibition runs from July 22 through October 14, 2012.


Portraiture has always been motivated by two competing and overlapping desires: the desire to record, and the desire to be recorded. Artists Katy Grannan and Charlie White have examined this tension, exploring concepts of identity and subjectivity in a world increasingly dominated by media representations of the ideal self. The Sun and Other Stars presents two bodies of work that map the fragility and resilience of individuality in contemporary Western culture.
