The proposal deals with an eminently characteristic trait of our current society, the desire for celebrity, or to put it differently, the desire to get out of the shadows to enter the light, sometimes even hoping to become this "light". The desire for celebrity seems to win over more and more individuals today; and this phenomenon has largely increased with the multiplication of information via social networks, reality TV, the multiplication of screens, and more generally, with all the strategies put in place by the society of the spectacle. In 1968, in the catalog of an exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Warhol wrote: "In the future, everyone will have the right to 15 minutes of worldwide fame. "Indeed, from now on, everyone can claim a form of celebrity if they wish. But what kind of fame is it? What for? And with what consequences? Dungeon is an animation made from photographs of photographs. The elements that make up the film come from prints found in magazines, books, and posters. These images, degraded or even torn, are marked by materiality. They were photographed before being reworked and animated.

Lives and works in Nice.
In 2015, Jérémy Griffaud created the artists’ collective VeryHighStuff
(VHS), a project dedicated to video and scenography.
This project creates international exhibitions every
year. That same year, Griffaud also joined the fanzine Endemic.
In 2017, he graduated from the École Supérieure d’Arts Plastiques
de la ville de Monaco and obtained a National Diploma
of Plastic Expression (Master 2 Art). He also joined the
musician Benjamin Fincher in his project ITOLADISCO to
make live video performances.
In 2018, Griffaud joined the Super Issue collective. Since
then, he has participated in artistic projects related to publishing.
At that time, Griffaud dedicated his time to making
videos and drawing.
He makes art films and draws.
In 2019, he creates videos from his drawings and digital photographic collages that he presents in installations. From these composite images in movement, he revisits contemporary culture broadcast on social networks, television or the music industry.
By questioning the issues of his time, Griffaud parallels, for
example, the preservation of biodiversity and the body-built
staging of oneself as in the projects Enlarge Yourself and Landstrength.
By hijacking clichés anchored in the collective imagination,
Griffaud produces absurd or parodic works that draw on the
contours of his singular universe and a fantasy world.
