Century Echoes Scarf by Electronic Sheep
‘Century Echoes’ scarf is from Electronic Sheep’s ‘Airships & Spaghetti’ collection which celebrates the year of 1916 - a significant era in international modernism and in Irish history. Inspired by Gertrude Stein’s seminal account of bohemian life in early twentieth-century Paris, it captures moments in the historical landscape, from the political (the Easter Rising in Ireland; the birth of DaDa in Zurich) to the cultural (the launch of British Vogue; the publication of James Joyce’s first novel). This scarf features research by Conor Lucey and drawings by Electronic Sheep of James Joyce in a dressing gown, Gertrude Stein walking her dogs, Irish artist Harry Clarke and references to Dada.
