Tribute to Shorty Harris 1994

Uploaded: January 24, 2020 | Entered: January 24, 2020 00:00:00


Belgian artist Fred Bervoets. His “portrait” sculpture of Shorty Harris and a penguin has elicited countless questions. The miner makes sense, but why the Antarctic bird? Word has it that Bervoets wanted to include in his sculpture an indication of how “alien” he felt in the Nevada desert. The penguin was the most out of place entity the artist could think of to represent his own feelings of displacement under the Mojave sun, a self-portrait then as a penguin in the desert.
