Finnish visual artist Sophia Ehrnrooth set up a film studio in MACRO Asilo museum in Rome in 2019. She invited passersbys to participate and recite as many football players as they could remember in one sitting. Ehrnrooth’s aim was to re-create her 2017 video work “879 Heroes by Heart”, which was shown in the museum at the same time. After a person couldn’t possibly remember any more names, the artist asked them one more question. Surprised off-guard, the answers they gave were sincere and honest.
