Italian artist Sven Sachsalber is going to try to find a needle in a haystack - quite literally - in a performance at a Paris museum.

The artist will spend Thursday and Friday looking for the elusive needle - pre-inserted into the haystack by museum head Jean de Loisy - at the Palais de Tokyo, a contemporary art gallery in the French capital.

The 27-year-old is an adept of extreme performances and has in the past spent 24 hours in his room with a cow, and once cut all the branches from a tree on which he was perched.
