From the curator’s text:
In Montauk Lighthouse No. 1 (2008), Sapir continues to explore Cryptids. This collage is a part of his lasting occupation with the “Monster of Montauk”; an unidentified creature that according to three female witnesses was washed away to the shores of the American recreation town. According to the witnesses, the dead (and beaten) creature was perpetuated in two photos, and later was found decomposed. Among the many speculations regarding the existence and origin of this monster, was that it escaped from a high secured research institution of the American government (Animal Disease Center), which is located nearby and is used since 2003 for research against Bio-Terrorism.
