An Italian performance artist decided to try and find a needle in a haystack - and somehow managed to complete his task!
Described as "often funny, often serious and sometimes both" with a "universal poetic element that does not need much explanation" on the Galerie Rianne Groen website, Sven Sachsalber has previously eaten a poisonous mushroom, spent 24 hours with a cow in a room and cut down a large tree by hand in the name of art.
The needle was buried in a deep pile of hay in inside Paris' Palais de Tokyo, and Sven started his mission yesterday and has already found the needle!
So in case you were wondering - finding a needle in a haystack is a lot easier than people think. The next time someone uses that term, tell 'em if some performance artist fella called Sven can do it, ANYONE can!
