(b. Wettingen, Switzerland,  1988) are a Swiss artist, based in Zurich. Their artistic practice spans diverse media such as painting, video, installation, performance, and text, all revolving around the complexities of contemporary embodiment. Tristan Amor Rabit emphasize the interconnectedness of celebration and mourning, while intentionally challenging conventional readability. Currently, they are deeply engaged in a transdisciplinary pursuit of an inclusive state of being, breaking free from rigid categories, static identities, and individualistic, disciplinarian norms.

Tristan Amor Rabit are involved in coordinating collective projects such as thank you for the reminder (2023-ongoing), a collective which understands itself as a loose group of people who gather for short periods of time by doing residencies to counter dystopian perspectives, or LTD* Academy Zurich (*Living The Dream) (2019-on hold), where learning and unlearning from and with each other are of special interest. From 2020-2021 they were running Warenlift, an independent exhibition space based in Altstetten Zurich. In 2024 they join Echo Club, an experimental learning format that collaboratively investigates performance practices initiated by The School for Collective Embodied Inquiry.
