“These are the businessmen for whom the 90s were ‘stormy’, but for us, artists, they were ‘brave’. These were the glorious years! Yes! We used to work to the point of exhaustion, without sleep, without money: everything, that was made, was made in the flush of enthusiasm! We traveled a lot, brought information and shared it. It was a passage/method from Europe to Ukraine, not the other way round.”

She is a graduate of the department of philosophy at Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University. Since the beginning of 1990s she has been creating the “Uta Situation” TV show.
