Aga Khan Museum: The making of Aisha Khalid’s “Your Way Begins on the Other Side”

In this short video, celebrated artist Aisha Khalid reflects on the inspiration behind and the process of creating her six-metre long double-sided tapestry, titled “Your Way Begins on the Other Side.”

Inspired by a traditional four-part Persian garden and named after a poem by Sufi mystic Rumi, the hand-made tapestry consists of more than one million gold-plated pins. It remains the first contemporary acquisition of the Aga Khan Museum.




Aisha Khalid is a contemporary visual artist and a specialist of miniature painting, textiles, video and site specific installations in architectural settings.
