    Sleeping Beauty, Kiev

    From Kiev: A Ukrainian-Canadian artist is presenting an¬†interactive art projectcalled “Sleeping Beauty,” in which five attractive young women take turns sleeping under dim lights in Kiev’s top gallery, each under a pledge to marry the visitor who wakes her with a kiss.¬†Any unmarried museum-goer can kiss the woman in the hope of making Beauty fall in love and awaken. There was an awkward man from a provincial Ukrainian town, who knelt down before one Sleeping Beauty and wept because she didn’t wake up from his kiss. It seems there is a religious metaphor in here.
