Marjolein Guldentops is a Brussels based visual artist and performer who explores the materiality of language and textual experience through writing and oral expression. She delves into themes of motion, place, and urban rhythms, investigating the interaction between the human body and its spatial surroundings. Engaging with various linguistic systems, she employs the ambiguity and conventionality of language to convey multiple layers of meaning and interpretation. Guldentops incorporates graphic and typographic elements, spatial compositions, and sequences reminiscent of songs into her work, which can take various forms such as performance, drawing, publication, and installation.
