All and Nothing


All and Nothing explores the intricate life of late conceptual artist Li Yuan-chia, tracing his journey from WWII-era China to Taiwan, 1950s Milan, Bologna, and Swinging Sixties London, culminating in his 1971 establishment of the L.Y.C. Museum & Gallery in rural Cumbria. The film captures his essence as a journeyman and artist.

'Thank you Li Yuan-chia, you are the most important person in our heart, and we are your invisible friend. We are all a small dot in the vast ocean because we cross the barriers of space and time and we have a surreal relationship. We wouldn't say it's a metaphysical spiritual exchange, I think we completely change each other's lives.

'When we saw the words you left behind before your life had vanished, and watched you concentratedly working, we just want to tell you that we believe we found what you thought you had lost. If it was your fate to be lonely, misunderstood, and for your life to fade away, and perhaps no one would ever remember all the things you did, would you still make the same choices? We would because we have found you.' - LIAO I-ling and CHU Po-ying
