The Sleeping Beauty artwork seeks real life princes and princesses

by | 25th, August 2012

THE Sleeping Beauty installation at the National Art Museum of Ukraine features sleeping women. Men are invited to kiss them once on the lips. If the woman opens her eyes, man and woman are contractually obliged to marry.

This is, of course, how Prince Edward finally got a mate.

Ukrainian-Canadian artist Taras Polataiko explains:

“Everybody, any viewer, will have to sign the contract, which says if – this is very important, because nobody has to – ‘if I kiss the beauty and she opens her eyes while being kissed, I marry her’….It’s a really serious thing, it’s marriage.”

Princes and princesses must be over 18. Frogs are welcome.

PS – Real princes smell of billiard chalk, Mahiki Treasure Chest, wet hotel room and regret.
