Vogue Scandinavia – A tale of two homes” – Peter Ibsen
Inhabiting the very Danish desire to balance city and country life, the gallerist and art collector Peter Ibsen has cultivated two distinct spaces: a minimalist apartment and a wood-heavy summer house. If home is where the heart is, his heart, like many Scandinavians, is split in two
There is something in the Scandinavian psyche that manifests itself in the love of a summer house. An hour or two outside a Nordic capital, surrounded by lush greenery, often with easy access to a body of water, we can balance our obsession with nature with our love of simplistic design. Here, wooden walls soften sounds to hums and whispers.

Peter Ibsen in It´s A Passion Thing
Interview in Eurowoman magazine
“Hvad bør der være i ethvert hjem?
– Kunst, uden tvivl! Ellers mangler der noget. Men for mig handler det om, hvad der ikke skal være i et hjem. Fyld, rod og ting, der hober sig op, skal ud.
Hvad er din seneste investering til boligen?
– En Rocket-espressomaskine. Den er et unikum af æstetik, og så laver den sublim espresso. Gode ting må godt tage tid og være svære. Jeg er stadig ved at lære, hvordan man laver de der hjerter i mælkeskum. Rent kunstmæssigt er det et værk af den amerikanske kunstner Ron Gorchov, som det tog mig flere år at finde.”

Peter Ibsen / Besat af kunst in “Bo Bedre” 2018
Link to Article – Peter Ibsen / Bo Bedre Interview
“– Jeg køber nok kunst alt for tit. Til gengæld bruger jeg lang tid på at finde det rette værk. Skal der en ny kunstner ind i samlingen, kan der gå år, før jeg åbner op. Det skal ikke være let. For det skal hænge sammen med de andre kunstnere, jeg samler på. De første 10 år købte jeg impulsivt. Helt uden retning eller formål. Det var ren sjusk. Men nok en rejse jeg skulle igennem. Derfor råder jeg til, at man ved kunstkøb tager sig god tid. Hellere købe få store værker i stedet for at skyde til højre og venstre, og købe en masse små ting. Forsøg ikke at købe det samme som naboen. Det må godt gøre ondt i maven. Og det er vildt godt, hvis du er i tvivl og ikke føler dig sikker. Føles det lækkert med det samme, er der stor sandsynlighed for, at du bliver træt af værket.”

Bloomberg on Instagram and Art
As he looked through Instagram at home in Copenhagen, Peter Ibsen noticed paintings by French artist Baptiste Caccia that were bound for an art fair in Brussels.
“I wrote something like ‘very nice’ on the feed, and 10 minutes later his gallery called me,” Ibsen said. Thirty minutes later, he bought the painting.
7 Ways to Win Over Collectors on Instagram
Drop gallerierne – Instagram er nutidens kunstmarked
– Instagram er ikke en online-shopping-portal. Der er ikke en ’klik her og køb’-knap. Man ser noget, man finder interessant, og så tager man dialogen op derfra. Dialogen indledes bare på Instagram, siger Peter Ibsen.
En nybegynders guide: Sådan kommer du i gang med at købe kunst
Gallerier er ikke farlige
PI: ”Mange er bange for at gå på galleri. I starten var jeg da også dødsensangst for at gå ind ad døren og stille dumme spørgsmål. Man tænker: puuuha, de der piger står bare og kigger på én, det er sgu da pinligt. Og så skal man også gå ud ad døren uden at købe noget. Men det er ikke pinligt.
Gallerierne vil gerne have besøg og svare på dine spørgsmål. Især fordi folk nu bruger mindre tid på gallerier og køber mere over nettet. Det er da langt værre, at der ikke kommer nogen.”

Slow motion and “less is more” – Q&A with Danish art collector Peter Ibsen
Interview at http://www.arterritory.com with Peter Ibsen
Peter Ibsen began to collect art in 1995, when a painting in the window of an art gallery caught his attention. Although the painting in question was already sold, Ibsen found out who the artist was, and as simply as that, he has been intimately linked with art ever since. In his first decade of collecting, Ibsen focused on colorful figurative painting. This lasted until he came upon the masterful black and white works of the German minimalist painter, Gregor Hildebrandt. Ibsen’s conversion was so strong that he sold almost all of his color paintings, and now his collection is mainly based on abstract, minimalist works, with most everything done in shades of black, white and gray >>

In this famed land of equality, there’s a community of contributors helping to evolve the art scene. Artists such as Olafur Eliasson, who enchanted New York with his waterfalls, and painter/sculptor Per Kirkeby, whose reputation was elevated by his 2009 Tate Modern exhibition, are putting Danish art in the headlines. Peter Ibsen, known for his tightly curated collection of black-and-white minimal artworks, is also the man behind the well-read websites copenhagen-contemporary.dk and sunday-s.dk.
Ibsen has also opened Sunday Gallery as a brick-and-mortar space as well as joining Mikkel Carl in curating the new CODE art fair. Christian Andersen is a leader in producing consistently challenging shows, which he does at his namesake gallery, as well as offering a strong stable of established Danish and German artists at his second space, Andersen’s Contemporary. Lastly, and not to be underestimated, is the effect of the Danish Arts Foundation. Among the top public funders per capita in the world, it earmarked 80 million kroner in 2015 for working grants to artists. That is out of a funding budget of 500 million kroner spent on programmes to artists, institutions and other cultural agents.

At Work – Interview by Illum – Link to Interview / Peter Ibsen
“The Copenhagen gallerist talks everyday uniform, work, and how he’s not selling art but consciously placing it.
For gallerist and art collector Peter Ibsen visits to museums in his childhood were mostly connected with boredom. “At Louisiana you could get rye bread with salami and butter, that was the best thing about it for me back then,” he remembers. But 25 years ago, when randomly passing a gallery, there was a piece in the window that caught his attention. Sold – is the the best description of his first real encounter with art, which has since grown from passion to full-time employment with the gallery Sunday-S, which he opened in September 2016. From the location at Amaliegade in inner Copenhagen, Ibsen exhibits young international artists in a minimalistic space – a style the gallerist has made his signature. “
