Five young women have been taking it in turns to 'sleep' for three days as part of an interactive installation at the National Art Museum in Kiev, Ukraine.
The women are under a pledge to marry the person who 'wakes' them with a kiss.
Participant Yana Gurzhiy was surprised when she opened her eyes to another woman, having been kissed on the forehead, reports Metro.
The 24-year-old, who usually works as a translator, said: "I was astonished when I opened my eyes and saw a girl."
However, Gurzhiy insisted that she thinks the women's unconventional meeting happened for a reason.
"I believe it is not a coincidence we had to meet this way," she explained.
"She's a very interesting person, so I hope we'll have some kind of professional and creative partnership."
