The most strikingly opaque of the four large sculptures Carol Bove installed in Maccarone gallery’s long and skinny gravel side yard has the longest title: Love Fashions the Sidereal Body of the One In the Image and Likeness of the Other. The line comes from the writing of Eliphas Levi, a French magician and occultist, and the sculpture could certainly pass as some mysterious ritual object. Petrified wood protrudes from a steel column, an organic head on an industrial body. Another of Bove’s sculpture, Cat’s Paw, is less austere: it consists of a twisted body of bright yellow steel guarded by a weather-ravaged sheet of metal and topped by a perfect black wheel.
