Real-Life “Sleeping Beauties” Vow To Marry Whoever Wakes Themby Jillian Lucas on August 30, 2012
While this may be an exhibit at The National Art Museum of Ukraine, this is also real life, people. Under the direction of the artist, Taras Polataiko, five sleeping women will be kissed by a bunch of strange men in hopes of finding their soulmate and future spouse. Both the men and “Sleeping Beauties” involved in the “exhibit” have signed “contracts” stating that they will, in fact, marry each other if the woman happens to be “magically” awoken. That’s a lot of quotations, but you get the idea. Also, it’s livestreaming for you to watch the whole thing like a creepy crystal ball. This feels a bit weird.
