Collage with wallpaper, and acrylic paint on linen canvas stretched on frame. This painting is part of the Paperwall series which began with the discovery of original plans. These plans are the root, the base of these compositions. These plans symbolize the house, our corner of the world, our Cosmos in the words of Gaston Bachelard in his book "The Poetics of Space". It is a place of refuge, a protection in which man will be able to dream, a waking dream that takes us back to childhood. I use wallpaper. I choose it among papers found at flea markets, dated papers. My memory of the place directs this choice. The paper plays a graphic and memorable role. Then I tear it, in control, either to reveal the layer underneath (art of the palimpsest) or to show a scratch, an attack of time. A duality sets in: wanting to show and wanting to hide.

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.
