Critical Review

The Acquired Inability To Escape Divided is part of a series of works all inspired by the original installation from 1991. In 1993, Hirst made three exact replicas of the installation, The Acquired Inability to Escape Inverted, The Acquired Inability to Escape Divided and The Acquired Inability to Escape Inverted and Divided, along with this lithograph, derived from a photograph of the structure.

The glass vitrine shown in this print has become a signature structure for the artist, who cites painter Frances Bacon as an early influence on his work. Hirst’s first vitrine was A Thousand Years, made in 1990, which showed a pair of interlinked glass cells which housed a swarm of flies feeding off a rotting cows head.
