ABSENCE

Absence is a mural painted on the façade of Illorput, a social centre in Nuussuaq.
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 and provides some kind of shelter.
There are no trees in the area, so probably the mural is the only tree around as well as Illorput is the only social space.

materials: acrylic on wood

Absence is part of the editorial project, driftongue.
