‘An ode to painting and sculpture, that’s just one of the themes of Centrale for contemporary art’s exhibition Xavier Noiret-Thomé & Henk Visch. Panorama. As part of the city-centre art space’s long-running dialogue series, Brussels-based French artist Xavier Noiret-Thomé has invited Dutch sculptor and draughtsman Henk Visch to show work alongside his own paintings and collages.’ – The Bulletin

On the occasion of the last week of the exhibition PANORAMA, CENTRALE invites you to meet the artists Xavier Noiret-Thomé and Henk Visch online. Last chance to exchange with them and discover the other side of the scene!

Moderation: Carine Fol (Artistic Director of CENTRALE) and Philippe Van Cauteren (Artistic Director of S.M.A.K, Ghent)


Xavier Noiret-Thomé, a French artist based in Brussels, creates singularly-varied paintings and collages that feed on knowledge, experience and lived experiences. He has chosen to invite Henk Visch, a Dutch sculptor, draughtsman and painter, whose monumental and miniature sculptures, to him, echo the human thought process.

Their direct and intense works depict a vision of reality sometimes tinted with humour, as these artists attempt to define the creative process and its impact on life.

For this exhibition, the two artists devised a journey split into five chapters, going from thought to metaphysics. Proposing an alternative approach to the classical presentation of painting and sculpture, this path allows for a reading of the very artistic process of their respective works, and the issues it addresses.
