better in my dreams (2024)
“better in my dreams” is the debut poetry and photograph zine collection by Toronto artist, writer, and curator Christina Oyawale. Showcasing a series of prose and (un)ordinary thoughts, Oyawale writes about platonic and romantic love from an anarchist perspective; reflective on the uninhibited nature of their navigations of gender and sexuality. Like a stream of consciousness that sometimes gets in its own way, Oyawale attempts to find a silver lining through the magic of natural landscapes and sexual euphoria. Notes and thoughts on disability, ecologies, sexuality, kinship, loss, yearning, and ageing.
