A conversation between Anna-Louise Milne and Andy Robert for the launch of no.37 in the Cahiers Series published by the American University of Paris' Center for Writers & Translators in association with Sylph Editions (London).
In this cahier, Anna-Louise Milne charts the silent cues and halting accounts that constitute the everyday choreography of care in a world where the rules are anyone’s guess and everyone’s business. The text is rhythmed by paintings by artist Andy Robert in which figures emerge vividly from his experimental and abstract use of colour and line, inscrutable and requiring. Inspired by his surroundings and community in Brooklyn, his travels, as well as his family’s involvement in healthcare and mass transit, Robert’s work shares Milne’s interest in our cities’ hidden places that harbour the labour that sustains the bodies of those who are often deemed expendable, even unspeakable.
The ambition of the Cahiers Series is to make available new explorations in writing, in translating, and in the areas linking these two activities.
