"Alexandra Chauchereau started this Paperwall series with the discovery of original plans of different apartments. These paintings are inspired by the floor plans of these living spaces. She uses wallpaper for its role as both plastic and memorial. She tears it up and tries to bring out the cracks. The palimpsest is very present in this painting with a duality between wanting to show and hide. This piece is made with collages of printed paper, wallpaper, Japanese paper, and acrylic paint. The linen canvas is stretched on a frame.

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.
