Mark Rowden: Ednamorphosis - Art Collector

  Mark Rowden’s prints explore the personal realms of modern life through a very recognisable style. For this project, Rowden decided to use the public space to celebrate the Australian icons of Barry Humphries and Dame Edna and explore the relationship between the man and the character with traditional printmaking techniques. It is culturally significant that these icons are being celebrated in a place dedicated to transport, because the character of Dame Edna was developed during a period of travel. In 1955 Barry Humphries was invited to join the fledgling Union Theatre Repertory Company, which toured Victorian country towns. Whilst on tour, Humphries invented Edna gradually as part of the entertainment for the actors during commutes between towns.
