Lai Dieu Ha was born in Thái Nguyên, to an artist family, and graduated from Hanoi Fine Arts University in 2005.
Her art is 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 as the object of research and practice.
She experiments, questions and challenges herself, half suggesting half challenging the audience to come up with their own answers. By using photography, painting, sculpture, installation, and video, Diệu Hà employs the psychological blurriness to form and articulate her artistic voice.
Since 2017, Lại Diệu Hà has been using painting to depict her own past performances as a means to introduce, reflect and archive her own art practice.
