Depending on what the viewer brings to this museum, Chance could prove to be a prolific goddess. One viewer was invited by the artist to create an entirely new museum out of the Museum of Chance. He called it the Museum of Erotics, and it hangs on the wall here alongside Chance. Beginnings and endings come together in this journey of self-engendering museums as Mona Ahmed returns to this particular instance of a museum within a museum, to make longing, loss and the passage of time part of the same ongoing story.
