“Secrets – such was the name of a very popular children’s game in the USSR. Mostly 5-8 year old girls were involved in this game. It was not just a game, but rather a mystic ritual. Natalya has portrayed women, who have moved to Germany from Russia or former Soviet republics. The artist repeats with these now grown-up girls the game of “Secrets” [Sekretiki,] meaning Treasures, and finds common reminiscences.”
