Instruction by João Renato Orecchia Zúñiga

David Krut Projects is pleased to present Instruction, a solo project by João Renato Orecchia Zúñiga opening on the 14th of May 2019 at David Krut Projects, 142A Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood, Johannesburg. Instruction is a visual exploration of a playful and intuitive working process with sound and music. Orecchia finds ways of charting sonic movements and translations onto paper, developing a unique written musical language, which is incorporated into experimental music scores.

Instruction showcases Orecchia’s first series of etchings and woodcuts created in collaboration with the David Krut Workshop and Master Printer Jillian Ross. The body of prints is accompanied by static and interactive sound installations, videos and performances.

Orecchia is a Johannesburg based artist, composer and maker of physical and virtual “things” that play with reality by deconstruction, shifting expectations of standard uses or purposes of objects and processes.
