LI Yuan-chia, the first Chinese conceptual artist, was born in a poor China village during WWII. As a war orphan, he came to Taiwan after the withdrawal of the KMT from China. In order to get rid of the feudal atmosphere of the post-war Taiwan, he went to Europe to embrace the freedom of art creation. As he located in the 70s northern conservative British village, he had built an extraordinary museum beyond all scales by his own hands: LYC museum is a space of freedom and belonging to everyone, where is also LI’s home.
