Last year I had an interview for a position at a university. I was not good in interview and I was rejected. After obtaining experience in interviews, I was accepted for another position in another country. Now I am thinking of re-applying for that position I was rejected, ( it is still open). Given the mental background they have about my previous interview, I am confident that if I complete the application form, application will not be considered, unless I speak to them before submitting a formal application. I want to know whether it is a logical idea to re-apply for that? Or is sending an email to the head of department and ask him to give me another opportunity? Their rejection email was polite, I mean they told me that they impressed by my CV and encouraged me for future applications, but I know that I was bad in that interview, as it was my first interview for a faculty position.

I do not see how that can possibly help.

If you consider that faculty jobs are difficult to get in general, no it is not logical. But having been rejected previously might not change that situation much. I have been interviewed in the first round twice for the same job before.

it is still open

This is a clue something is wrong with the job. Maybe they do not intend to fill it. Maybe the pay is awful. Maybe they are bad a hiring. Maybe they posted the ad by mistake or forgot to remove it.
