Bénédicte Klène describes herself like a chroni-eater. Paper and drawing are always he center of her creative process. The series « The Little Things » is implemented on travel sketchbooks that she kept secret for a long time. Drawing has its dual role as a memorial and intermediary.
Memorial because it captures moments definitely over and allows to keep a potentially reactivated track. Intermediary because it’s used as a crossing point in the creation of works less intimate : paintings, performances or simply, staging sketchbooks 
Constant pendulum between public and intimate dimensions, avoinding the pitfall of exhibitionism…
Clear metaphor for the role of the creator as a smuggler of messages and/or emotions.
