moira bateman: the hungry girls

The Hungry Girls, a collection of 9 foot tall fiber and mixed media dresses hanging from old, weathered wood and metal¬†yokes, were inspired by Moira Bateman’s fascination with the images in Patricia Eakins’ story The Hungry Girls.

Bateman’s Hungry Girls are made of linen and raw sheep’s wool. The Minneapolis based artist used the one possession shared by the girls in the story – a nightdress – as the basis for this collection of “wild, woolly animal-like dresses.”
