“Absence”, is a mural, painted on the façade of Illorput, a social centre in Nuussuaq, Nuuk, Greenland. The mural depicts a tree consisting of human heads, floating in the sea. Illorput means “Our house” and the tree reflects the idea of a communal space-house that helps people grow by working with each other but provides some kind of shelter as well. There are no trees in Nuuk. The mural works as the only tree in the area and Illorput as the only social centre.
