INVAINTIONS OF CASTRO FIK ARKA
– natural and man-made –

(coLECTION of the original Castro Fik Arka’s works, enriched with
inventions of his scholars, followers, fans,
zinc and uranium
in the seventh house)

25.3.2021– 20.4.2021;
Cirkulacija 2
(Ajdovščina subway, Ljubljana)

The present interdisciplinary installation is an upgrade of Radharani Pernarčič’ prior exhibition Invaintions and with-drawings of Castro Fik Arka (Layerjeva hiša, Kranj, 2020) – this time in cooperation with authors of Cirkulacija2. The unique cosmos, a sort of a »time machine«, built of sculptures, drawings, sketches, calculations, photos, texts etc., now reaches an extra dimension and a motor by multimedia devices and approaches. In fact, Radharani Pernarčič admits the ultimate authorship to Castro Fik Arka – the ambitious genius who invents unusual devices and does groundbreaking researches in fields of anthropology, paleontology, astrophysics, biology, archeology, art etc. In a role of his curator she ensures that his works see the light of day. The current museum collection makes emphasis on Castro’s wide influence on new generations of scientists and inventors: by presenting the works of Castro’s most promising scholars and followers from the circle of the so called ‘cirkulacia school’, his legacy also becomes visible in ever more sophisticated inventions of his successors.

The spectator is embraced by weird phenomena, technological inventions, narratives and interpretational models, which intertwined with banal human impulses walk on a thin line between reality and nonsense. The proximity to actual knowledge mixed with imaginative/false data are there to remind us that human world is above all a social construct, a product of symbolic thinking – far from self-evident. And more so, that the creativity is an inherent propensity of all living, not only humans. The installation is thus a subtle critique of technocratic society, a satiric comment on science-as-religion, academia, ideology of control, individual authorship of ideas/knowledge, and on ways of legitimizing or discrediting the reality. In times when only reliability of scientific methods is widely promoted, this witty installation displayes science as a complex production field: a processual whirlpool of findings, personal resentments, rival competitions, dogmas, positioning, curiosity, mistakes, false believes, doctrines, levers of power, information and contra-information, access to finances, publications, acknowledgment, denial, courage … Or, with Castro Fik Arka’s words: “Ego is a lousy scientist and author, yet, it is a brilliant material, though!”

The opening will be accompanied by an eager discussion on family background of Castros’ researches, held by the leading experts on Fik Arka’s legacy:

Rahdarana Bernarčič-Permanentič

and

Viktor Žiga Mumomakić

(by demand the discussion will be continued during the time of the exhibition
and shall reach the peak at the closing with Wi-Fight)

The museum team expresses a sincere thanks to the vice-chairman of the Scientific council for Castro’s researches (SCCR), Sanja Simić,
and to all who have contributed to the presentations and understanding of Castro’s works: Zala Orel, Juš Škraban, Alexander Pečnik, Boža Krajcer, Ajda Tomazin, Ivan Antić, Mitja Novak, DISCOllectiv, Mare Bulc, Ilona Jerič, Grafos d.o.o. etc.
