Lại Diệu Hà

Graduated from Hanoi Fine Arts University in 2005


Lại Diệu Hà’s art is unique, obsessive and multi-faceted. At first she specialized in performance art: performing the inner self, the urgency of finding self’s origin and everything it clashed into. She usually used her body for experiment and practice, as a test and a question of which answers are but confusions. Developing the media to now encompass photography, painting, sculpture, installation, and video, Dieu Ha still employs the psychological blurriness to form and articulate her artistic voice.

Her last notable exhibitions include ‘Psychodrama Therapy’, Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival, Chicago, USA, 2014; ‘Mind, Flesh, Matter’, Sàn Art, Ho Chi Minh City, 2014. In 2015 Dieu Ha held the first solo show ‘Conservation of vitality’ with Cuc Gallery, Hanoi, Vietnam.

Since 2017, Lại Diệu Hà has worked intensively with painting as a way to introduce her performance practice.
