The Ashes Remain Warm


The Ashes Remain Warm




CATALOGUE TEXT
Pico do Fogo is the name of a volcano on the Cap Verde Islands whose last eruption buried the small community of Chã das Caldeiras under lava. It came like a black flood and covered everything. What’s left is a metre-high blanket of intricate forms from which a few scattered roofs protrude. But the colours are gradually returning – new green as well as the people who refuse to leave the area.
