Aqueous Red explores the hidden aspects of water and love, through Kit Ingram's spellbinding poetic exorcism of violence, intimacy, dreams, and illicit liaisons which surface in fragments of interconnected lives. A boy watches his father pour scalding water onto his brother's hands, and later rescues a doll, promising to protect it with a kiss. A priest blesses a prostitute with holy water while a son drowns in a painful memory. In the sequence 'Red', a married man falls in love with a drag queen, and they play out fantasies of violence in a theatrical blaze that threatens their destruction. Intimate and voyeuristic, this collection plumbs the unseen moments that bind us all.
