Marjolein Guldentops is a Belgian visual artist and performer who explores the materiality of language and textual experience through writing and orality. Her work addresses themes of movement, place, and urban rhythms, examining the interaction between people and their spatial environments. Her text compositions are characterised by wordplay and the ambiguity of language, combining graphic and typographic elements to create spatial compositions that give language and words a sculptural expression, realised in videos, drawings, and installations.

Guldentops obtained a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels. Her work has been exhibited at various venues, including Museum M (Leuven), Cas-Co (Leuven), La Boverie (Liege), URBAN NATION Museum (Berlin), and B09k (Changsha). She has participated in several performance events, such as "Apples & Oranges: An Artists' Publications and Multiple Fair" at Jester (Genk), WIELS Art Book Fair (Brussels), "Les Heures Sauvages" at the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles (Paris), and the "bang! Festival" at Stelplaats (Leuven). Her first artist book, "Where Are We Going," was published by Zero-Desk Editions. She was an artist-in-residence at Urban Nation (Berlin) and the Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris). She has received support from the Flemish Government, the VGC, SOFAM, and the European Union.
