I don’t know exactly how to describe The Iwanoff Project myself so let me just borrow from the promo material for a moment – ‘an Australian art & design exhibition & an open-for-inspection event of an Iwan Iwanoff home’. There. Who is Iwan Iwanoff? Well he was an architect, Bulgaria born who resided in Perth from the 1950’s & who designed some rather interesting looking abodes during his illustrious career. It’s unfortunate he passed away at the ripe young age of 67 because no doubt he would have had a fair few designs in him yet.
The Iwanoff Project put simply is a very novel idea to promote fine architecture, the sale of a house & in its furnishings, fashion & jewellery, sculpture & artwork – promote our very own home-grown & national artisans – then open the whole house up to the public & make it all for sale. Judging by the number of heads through the doors this kind of event in Perth is a pretty hot ticket, and I thought a rather quaint way to spend an hour on a Sunday morning. Needless to say I turned up with camera at the ready & was given kind permission to snap away.
For further details & in-depth knowledge on the whole project head over to We Love Perth. They ran a great interview last week with the Curator of the project Marisia Lukaszewski – one very clever lady.
Have a great week.
