Space & Freedom (2019) creatively explores Li Yuan-chia’s original plans for the LYC Museum and his relationship with the Cumbrian landscape. Originally commissioned by Manchester Art Gallery, the film is the result of extensive research into Li Yuan-chia’s own film archive. It mixes his 8mm footage, and previously undiscovered sound recordings, with contemporary HD footage and field recordings along with the musician Steve Beresford improvising with the images in a complex sound work.
