To coincide with Byars's current retrospective at MoMA PS1, his gallery presents examples of his late work, including a pair of gilded marble columns resembling large upright bars of gold bullion, and two spheres of carved basalt, placed in a proximity that suggests a certain feature of male anatomy. As usual for the artist, the pieces exude a presence that is at once mystical and mysterious.
