"When I was a child, my grandmother used to tell me many stories, including Charles Perrault's Little Red Riding Hood. The wolf terrorized me. This work is not intended to deal with the symbolism of this tale, but only to illustrate the memory of the wolf that made walks in the forest both existing and frightening. This painting is made with acrylic. A band on the right is very dark in a large flat area and the wolf stands out from it to have its snout on a very colourful and animated surface. I try to create a rhythm in each work, with quiet zones and noisy zones. Here the wolf comes out of the shadows without making a sound." - Alexandra Chauchereau

Memory has never ceased to be at the heart of Chauchereau’s work. Even in the "Paysages" series, especially the one on the silos of Le Loir et Cher, it is the memory of the men who had worked on this land that served as her inspiration.

A second axis of the artist’s research led her to question her own identity based on events she had experienced or heard. She asked questions such as: who are we to ourselves and who are we in the eyes of others? To illustrate this, as well as the dematerialisation of human relationships, the artist chose to make portraits by working from police records. She introduces words in apparent mismatch, questions the visible aspects – those we want to show but also the invisible – that which we hide voluntarily or involuntarily.

Her work therefore focuses on the question of memory, identity, and pretence. And then, in line with this same research, Chauchereau came across her paternal grandfather's war notebook. In 2018, this "Carnet de Guerre" series gave rise to three major personal exhibitions, with press, TV and radio coverage, in Boulogne Billancourt, Pont à Mousson and Le Mans.
