(Group show) Installation at The Erasmus house Brussels March-June 2022
The spread of Erasmus' ideas was only possible because of the invention of the printing press. The printer/publisher played an enormously important role. Printers worked closely with Erasmus, who often lived with them for months at a time. Yet Erasmus' work also ended up being burned at the stake.
Sander de Wilde worked with themes such as reproduction, burning, fire, ashes, transience, durability, types of paper, print runs, the printer's mark, friendship and humour.
Ets (zink) 7 x 10 cm.
Formaat Zerkall 210 gr. in resin (10 x 15 cm )
Ashes and charcoal 30x 40 cm.
Inspired on the printer's mark of Aldus Manutius De Wilde placed his own printer's mark partly burnt and in resin in the ashes of the chimney at the original Erasmus house in Brussels.
GENES 2022 installation
This installation was first shown in February 2022.
It is a combination of a projection and painting. Sander painted over poster with symbolic and nostalgic meaning. After researching his family tree for 15 years he made a projection of 40 of ancestors, animated by Deep Nostalgia. An artificial intelligence program that can use images of persons, be it photographs or paintings, and brings them back to live.
5000 people visited the expo and were astounded by the movements of the dead on the curtain, some opened it to see the painted life tree on old posters behind.
'Working Progress' 2021
2019-2021 Sander worked on the theme of Evolution. His 'Working Progress' is an installation consisting of etchings, lithographs, a Lith stone, a table and a cupboard, ink on transparencies, and other prints on paper.
It was presented as an installation in 2021 in Brussels during a temporary group show by art academy RHoK.
During the groupshow Carte de Visite ArtopenKunst (Brussels) in May 2021 (postponed due to Covid) he showed his biggest work ever.

This expo is a short view on his work made in 2018: Copper etchings made by re-using his photojournalistic work.
De Wilde uses street photographs, journalistic photographs, found footage and even corporate work as beginning for new graphic work. He works on transparencies, paints and scratches on them, puts them on a copper plate with a photographic emulsion, and prints it in very small editions.
ON the Bitcoin and NFT Meta world.
Fascinated by Bitcoin and the Art revolution concerning the sales of NFT on platforms as Open Sea and Rare.io Sander started to dive into reworking nft works into new physical works.
