The incredulity of Saint Thomas

When the crack in the glass seemed unreal and a strong urge lead my hand to touch it, I cut myself. It was only then, the work became real. (From the Notes of Michal Martychowiec, 6/06/2015)

The incredulity of Saint Thomas is an open signifier created by Michal Martychowiec in 2016. It could be said it constructs an open symbolic narrative of the universal cultural frameworks using two elements borrowed from art history: Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass and the classical iconographic representation of the incredulous Thomas.
