Title: Oración


This work, inspired by a poem by María Mercedes Carranza, proposes a new approach to literary translation, revealing the depth and power of poetic connotations through visual intervention.

Caballero interpreted Carranza’s original poem, writing an English version that resists being literary to focus on the uneasiness evoked by the original text, seeking to explore her own complex relationship with devotion and highlighting poetry’s capacity to preserve and transmit emotions. Caballero also transformed Carranza’s verses into verbal instructions from artificial intelligence to obtain images representative of the despair of the original poem, creating an archive of hundreds of images. The architecture, textures, palettes, postures, and iconography of prayer have been conditioned by institutionalised religion over the centuries. Despite this, Caballero found honesty in his dialogue with the machine, curating a visual narrative that invokes hope, disillusionment, and the loneliness of prayer.

There are few places where the personal and the universal, the sublime and the twilight, the unknown and the known meet as acutely as in prayer, but also as in poetry.
