This work was inspired by the tale "Beauty and the Beast". My grandmother often told me this tale and I was fascinated by the garden of the beast, and its tempting roses. The beast is hidden in his garden, only one eye is visible. His monstrosity is not visible. I wanted to associate in this work a figurative writing (the part of the face of the beast) and a more abstract writing (the garden).

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.
