During her performance Leopoldville mourning, Tankwey takes the participants in a funeral procession from the Monument au Travail (Rue Claessens, 1020 Brussels) to the church of Laeken, where Belgian royalty including Leopold II is buried. Pulling at arm's length a tombstone adorned with archival photographs of Léopoldville, the public follows the artist in this funeral procession to the entrance of the church to symbolically bury the colonial city.
