Statement Maybe captures a back-and-forth between opposite poles, culminating in mixed feelings that can be construed as indecision. Maybe is considering all the options and opting to see just how long one can hold off on choosing an unknown. Maybe isn't one way or another, but through its ambiguity, typically finds itself inadequate. Maybe is caught between two ill-conceived notions but for the moment, is its own best alternative. Maybe is feeling torn.
Maybe the exhibition is the result of an exploration? Maybe this exhibition is leading an inquiry? Maybe the viewer will decide?
