Taking an extended view of time as a starting point, Nikolai Nekh, in Achilles’ Heel, embarks on a journey narrated by a ghostly figure who visits different civilizational, social, political, economic, and ideological contexts. This aims to weave together a speculative analysis of the inter-relations between the industries and technologies of raw materials and energy sources and the representation of movement.


Nikolai Nekh (1985, Slavhansk-na-Kubani) lives and works in Lisbon. His artistic practice consists of the production and distribution of images. He is interested in trajectories of capitalism and its modes of representation.
