“A Dog that Always Caught Its Prey” by Marcin Liminowicz”

An ongoing research project concerning the use of psychiatric medication in canine behavior, the history of breeding, and the disciplinary power of language.

Differentiating between humans and animals often hinges on their respective abilities to use language. Twenty-first-century thinking is recently coming to the conclusion that animals, too, are language users. “A Dog that Always Caught Its Prey” is an essay-video comprising found and original footage, constructing a non-human world in which dogs — the very first domesticated species (genus Canis)— are the primary protagonists. In the process, the work juxtaposes various built environments in which dogs are exposed—ranging from individuals in shelters to highly trained military companions — and focuses on the emotional aspects of communication between humans and animals. Blending poetic and scientific language, the work invites us to interrogate the implications of understanding what it means to be human only through differentiation from what is labeled as animal.
