An ice sculpture, identical replica of Leopold II’s equestrian statue is placed under its upside down pedestal. The letters are muddled up and form the word PeoPL. In the image of the melting ice, the disappearance of the colonial discourse boasts a subtle temporality: it happens but is invisible to the naked eye. PeoPL addresses the image of Leopold II in the public space and phantasmagorical presence in the Belgian consciousness. A true act of faith in the context of a slow change in mentalities.
