As an artist, Youn, Juhee’s position is in the boundaries of society or art institution hard to define. As her attitude toward this is ambiguous, her position grew complicated, inconsistent, and difficult to manage. Youn sometimes takes this position to protect herself from external stimuli. She also seemed reluctant to clarify her opinion since she perceived both situations, or she put emphasis on both relationships. With this however, she was able to maintain her attitude for a long time without being confined by external stimulation. As Youn recognized all stances, and was in a relational position through which she discovered a contact point, she was able to maintain her position as a mediator as well as an usher or an interpreter who interpret other positions for communication.
