Jetlegged

Irene Ha (Gerrit Rietveld Academy, 2020) sees herself as a multidisciplinary persona and with the brand Baby Reni she represents different identities of the (South-East) Asian diaspora and questions generalising perceptions. Her work is characterised by an explosion of information, colours and textures. With the projects Jetlegged (2020) and Can I Go Out Already (2022 >) Ha explores the contradictions of life between two cultures and redefines what locality and authenticity mean to her. On the internet she found and developed a community – consisting of hobby mums, seamstresses, DJ’s, designers and other artists – and so built a creative universe in which she makes not only clothing but also installations.
