"CINCOAÑOSPARADECIRTEESTO".
Solo exhibition at the ESPACIO de PROYECTOS.
From April 26 to June 3, 2006.

Fúcares Gallery presents at its Project Room the second exhibition of the artist Cisco Jiménez (Mexico), at our space in Madrid.

C. J.’s work for this exhibition has been developed from the common practice of deconstructing reality and the meanings of image and language through a series of “little things” (as he puts it) in which, with different kinds of materials, particularly poor or fine, humble or coarse, he insists on the gut feelings of the artist’s first try, before arriving to the construction of the adornment, the elegance and the metaphor. As if from a “flatulence”, his work comes off as explosive and hoarse after the attempt to dress up and scatter its meanings.

Cisco Jiménez has recently exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum Carrillo Gil, Mexico City, “Voracious Inebriated Fire”, 2005; at the Compton Verney Foundation, Warwickshire, England, organised by Jimmie Durham for the Project “American West”; in “Mexican Report”, Meridian International Centre, Washington DC, 2005 ; in SKY SHOUT at the Galician Auditorium, Santiago de Compostela, 2006; “SHCP Collection”, Cultures Museum, Coahuila, Mexico,2006; “A handful of dust”, Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London, 2006, and “Contemporary Codices”, Cristóbal Colon Institute, Cuernavaca, Mexico.

In addition, he has participated in different art fairs, such as Art Cologne, Art Toronto, Basel-Miami, ARCO, MACO Mexico and Art Basel, with diverse galleries.

In October 2006 an individual exhibition will take place ("Treason and Death Objects") at the Leon Trotsky Museum, Mexico City.
