Kołtunica is a non-existent myth of a hair goddess realized in the form of a music video. Spinning furs, antlers made of melted combs, a headpiece made of synthetic hair, and furry tips stand behind her tuned image. The made objects, or even accessories, refer to Lower Silesian headpieces and are the result of the author’s fondness for hair. The main character – Kołtunica – comes from the world of fantasy filtered through the early 2000s and camp aesthetics.

He is interested in sexuality in the context of social constructs, all the clashes, and visually incompatible images – everything that escapes concrete definitions.
