Aeneas Wilder, Untitled # 140, just outside Antwerp
Wilder is in the art news this week because he created a huge installation for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and deliberately deconstructed it by kicking it down, causing it to tumble with incredible precision into a room full of sticks. The video is great – if the below link does not appear correctly, go to the YSP website to view it: www.ysp.co.uk

Wilder’s website showcases his work, and also has an interesting link to “Writings”, which are letters he has written to a friend. It is an interesting glimpse into his life an thoughts. Visit: http://www.aeneaswilder.co.uk
