Imigro: the rise of a new outcast subculture
For Khalilzadegan’s BA project, she produced the first issue of her ongoing publication, Imigro. At the exhibition she launched the magazine as well as built a floor-to-ceiling moodboard featuring pita bread, printed images, maps, and a Persian rug.
In her words: Imigro is an alter ego, a product of society. This work is a personal confession; an homage to double-identity and cultural heritage (s). It shows the complexity of integration and assimilation into a new culture as well as the creation of a new subculture that results from the mixing of two conflicting cultures. Imigro is a contemporary visual storyboard using photography and three-dimensional research items.
